About the Artist in Residence Program:
The Farmington Valley Arts Center (FVAC) launched the Artist in Residence Program in 2008 and has continued to support emerging local artists. This program provides a studio for selected artists to expand the parameters of their chosen medium, to explore new directions in their work, and to enhance their creative vision as part of the FVAC studio artist community. The Artist in Residence Program is made possible through the generosity of The Stanley D. and Hinda N. Fisher Foundation.
