The New York Mills Arts Retreat is currently accepting applications for July – December 2014 artist residencies. The Arts Retreat program offers self-funded 2-6 week solo residencies for selected artists in all disciplines.
A small house and studio access are provided, along with dedicated time for creative development and exploration in our rural Minnesota setting. Application can be completed online and must be submitted by April 1, 2014 to be considered for residencies during July – December 2014.
Some past visiting artists have this to say about the program:
“The residency in New York Mills gave me time to consider what I really wanted to do with my life. In our frantic, busy lives there isn’t time to ponder and reflect. And be creative at the same time. There isn’t much to get distracted by in New York Mills. […] It’s a good place to concentrate. The people are wonderful. The landscape is calming. It’s good for the brain. I still go back there.” — Linda, Minneapolis
“It [The Arts Retreat] sure had and still has an effect on me. The kind of peace of mind I was able to achieve while on retreat, the focus and concentration and the influx of new experiences (i.e. the people I met there, the landscape, the weather, the food, the sounds that surrounded me, etc. etc.) have been with me since and continue to influence my music and my life…I’d recommend it to anyone and it was a great and very meaningful experience. I’d come back anytime!” — Anat, Isreal
