The Legacy Grant is a special six-week residency offered to an outstanding artist who wants to work in any of our studio disciplines. WSW’s most recent Gala honoree selects a Legacy resident from the Studio Grant application pool. Previous honorees include Judy Pfaff, Mary Frank, Joan Snyder, Carolee Schneemann, Gillian Jagger, Barbara Leoff Burge, and Zarina.
This grant includes a $2100 stipend, up to $500 for materials used during the residency, up to $250 for travel costs, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access. WSW can also provide technical advice and production assistance.
Legacy grantees are selected from the pool of Studio Residency Grant applications. If you’d like to be considered for one or both residencies, then you should submit one application to the Studio Residency Grant.
