Arts/Industry, one of the most remarkable collaborations between art and industry in the United States, is accepting applications through March 14 for 12 residencies in 2022.
Hundreds of artists have benefited from Arts/Industry since its beginning in 1974. “This opportunity has been one of the highlights of my life, and I have so many ideas for metal work for future projects,” said previous artist-in-residence Kate Klingbeil.
Arts/Industry offers artists the time and space to focus on creating new work in studios located within the Pottery and Foundry at the Kohler Co. factory in Kohler, Wisconsin. It is open to emerging and established artists. Artists need not be trained ceramists or metal sculptors, just interested in the materials and the potential for the industrial environment and processes to influence their creative practice.
The residency emphasizes exploring new materials and processes in a hands-on way while building relationships with the skilled craftspeople who work for Kohler Co. Artists, four of whom are in residence at a time, are exposed to a body of technical knowledge that enables and encourages experimentation. Participants spend three months working in either the Kohler Co. Pottery or Foundry to develop work in ceramic, cast iron, and brass.
