The League Residency at Vyt provides support to emerging, established, and teaching artists by bringing them together with masters and colleagues for intensive focus through an international residency program. Enabling artists to focus on creating artwork for an extended period of time (one to two months), the residency offers living and studio space in a spacious, wooded setting just 24 miles north of the cultural center of New York. 
Affectionately known as “Vyt,” the property and funding was a gift from the family of Modernist artist and League instructor Vaclav Vytlacil. Hosting ongoing critiques, Open Studios, exhibitions and workshops, Vyt enables residents to craft their own mix of focused work, community with fellow residents, one-on-one mentoring from critics, and inspiration from the surrounding environment.
