Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program

This yearlong residency in New Mexico is solely dedicated to the development of individual artists, who receive a monthly $1,200 stipend to support their practice with no specific project-based requirements. The fee to apply is $25.

For over fifty years the Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program has provided talented artists a year-long opportunity to focus on their creative work. The Roswell Residency is not project-based nor engagement driven, providing the artist an opportunity to look inwardly.

The program is solely dedicated to the development of the individual artist. RAiR is perfectly geared to provide unobstructed studio time. Successful residents are self motivated and able to work happily with extended solitude. The nature of the RAiR Fellowship is informal. There are virtually no obligations on the part of the grantees except to respect the facilities and the privacy of the other artists.

The Roswell Museum generally invites fellows to have a solo exhibition of their work toward the end of their stay, however, this opportunity is optional. RAiR’s Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art then offers to purchase a piece from the artist for permanent display.

2024 applicants will be notified with results in late May, 2024.

Six residencies will be staggered throughout the year with start dates between November 1, 2024 and July 1, 2025.
