Artist Residencies

The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation offers three residency programs: at our main campus in Bethany, Connecticut (see below); in rural Senegal at Thread; and on the coast of Ireland at Carraig-na-gCat. Residencies are designed to provide time, space, and solitude for artists who exemplify the seriousness of purpose that characterized both Anni and Josef Albers.

We are pleased to announce our residencies in Bethany and Ireland have reopened. Thread Senegal remains closed until 2022. Please note: because of the need to reschedule artists who could not attend because of the pandemic, we are not currently accepting applications. We hope to have another open call in the near future.


Bethany, Connecticut

The Foundation maintains two residential studios for visiting artists on seventy acres of wooded property in Bethany, Connecticut. The residency gives artists the benefit of access to the Foundation's archives and library.
