Program Eligibility
All applicants must be United States citizens or legal Permanent Residents of the United States, 18 years or older, may not be enrolled in any degree program, and must be able to demonstrate need for a studio. Applicants may not be a resident artist in another studio program at the same time as the 2018-19 Smack Mellon residency.

Selection Process
A panel of arts professionals and artists will review applications and select artists for the 2018 season. Artists will be selected based on the quality of their work and their potential for making the most of their time in the program. Smack Mellon takes into consideration artists who best fulfill our mission to nurture and support emerging, under-recognized mid-career and women artists. All applicants will be notified by email in early March, 2018. Please do not call the office for selection results.

  • Enter title, medium, and date for each entry
  • Image script: Enter up to 60 words of description about the content of each image or series of images. This information will be reviewed by the panel when your work is viewed.

Helpful hint for submitting images: It's difficult for panelists to understand still images of video or performance work so we strongly suggest that you apply in the Video Submissions category if you are working in these mediums.
