roswell artist-in-residence program
Some funding provided by:
The Roswell Artist-in-Residence Program serves as a contemp-orary counterpoint to the trad-itional arts of the Southwest, reinforces the Program's interest in strengthening the vitality of art in New Mexico and has been a catalyst in broadening com-munity understanding of contemporary art.
While the visa process for non-US residents participating in our program has improved somewhat, we are still limited in our ability to assist with the long term visa issues that may arise for foreign participating artists. Overseas artists should consider visiting the USCIS web site and/or consult with local experts on this subject.

HOUSING ACCOMMODATIONS and STUDIO FACILITIES
The studios are large, open spaces that measure approximately 20'x25'x10'. These areas are well-lighted and convertible to the artist's requirements. Artists are housed in a complex of six houses and 10 studios located on fifty acres of land. Each artist is provided with a house that can amply accommodate either a single person or a family. Rent, utilities (except telephone), repairs and maintenance costs are borne by the Program. Houses are furnished with major furniture items, appliances and utensils within reason. The printmaking facility is a small, fully operational studio - basically lithographic/etching in nature.
Because of the close proximity of the buildings and setting of the residency, there is a policy of no dogs on the residency facility.
