Bunnell Street Arts Center’s “Alaska AIR”

Bunnell Street Arts Center’s Artist in Residence (AIR) features Alaska, national and international artists for residencies of varying lengths, from one week to one month. Bunnell offers a 1000 square foot studio/gallery space and lodging in a private room with a private bath and living/kitchen area in a private apartment. Alaska’s Artist in Residence (AIR) is a juried residency award that provides round-trip travel to Homer, and a stipend of $2000.

The program seeks artists who wish to develop new work and offer an educational engagement opportunity for the local community.

Bunnell’s Artist in Residence program has evolved with support from Rasmuson Foundation, US Artists, Homer Foundation, ArtPlace America and the National Endowment for the Arts. Today, it is primarily supported by private donors, foundation grants, and application fees.
