Rasmuson Foundation launched the Artist Residency Program in 2013. The program supports eight-week residencies for Alaska artists at Lower 48 organizations, and welcomes accomplished artists from Outside to Alaska organizations. The goals of the Artist Residency Program are to support the creative growth of Alaska’s artists and arts organizations, expose Alaskans to new work and creative processes of Lower 48 artists, and introduce Lower 48 communities to unique Alaska perspectives through extended engagements with artists.

The eligibility requirements have changed since last year: Alaska-based artists who have not received a Rasmuson Foundation Individual Artist Award are now also eligible to apply.
