 Each summer, the Terra Foundation for American Art offers ten residential fellowships for emerging artists and predoctoral scholars in a setting rich in art historical significance. Since 2001, the Terra Summer Residency has provided fellows with the opportunity to pursue individual work and research within a framework of interdisciplinary exchange and cross-cultural dialogue. In addition to working collaboratively, fellows interact regularly with invited senior advisors and guest lecturers— established international artists, curators, and professors in the field of American art. The program supports the creative and research projects of the residents, inspiring them to reflect on cultural interpretive models and encouraging them to create an intellectual network for lifelong exchange.
