Located just south of picturesque Nyack, New York, the Vytlacil Artist-in-Residence Program provides support to working artists in a spacious, pastoral setting only 20 miles north of Manhattan. Enabling artists to focus on creating artwork for an extended period of time (one to two months), the residency offers living and studio space, equipment, accessible proximity to New York City, and one-on-one mentoring and critiques in a wooded setting.

Artists are given individual space to freely focus on their craft, as well as ample opportunity to engage with the supportive community of artists that embodies the spirit of Vyt AIR. At the end of their residency, artists may participate in “Open Studio” sessions, a chance to share their work with the public and Art Students League’s extensive community.  Click here for application information.

·       a single bedroom for four- or eight-week residencies with a communal catered lunch provided weekly
