The Chinati Foundation’s Artists in Residence program was instituted in 1989 with the aim of supporting the development of artists of diverse ages, backgrounds, and disciplines. To date, the Chinati Foundation has hosted more than 150 artists from more than fifteen countries in its residency program.
The Artists in Residence program provides an opportunity for artists from around the world to work in a striking, natural environment. Exhibitions are often held at the conclusion of the residency. These become an important part of the museum’s temporary exhibition program, and provide a vital counterpoint to the permanent collection.
The Chinati Foundation provides a furnished apartment on the museum’s grounds and a studio in Marfa. Resident artists have access to Chinati’s collection and archive. A stipend of $1,500 is provided to assist with travel and art materials.
