Steep Rock Arts Association is a program designed to provide emerging visual Artists and Curators with time, space and professional guidance to explore their work in a supportive, thriving, artistic environment.

Residencies are awarded competitively, at no cost, to national and international emerging artists. Applicants are evaluated by a panel that includes a variety of professionals in the art field. Those selected will be awarded an eight week Residency. Each artist will receive a $10,000 stipend to cover the cost of materials and transportation.


Steep Rock Arts is located on a 100-acre estate, surrounded by rolling hills, working farms and protected lands.
