Indy Island Residencies

From its inception, Indy Island's artist, Andrea Zittel, envisioned the Island Residency as a temporary program. Working with Zittel, the IMA will be evaluating the future of the program and the Island. We are currently not accepting applications.

Each summer, a selected artist completes a six-week residency on Andrea Zittel’s Indy Island within the The Virginia B. Fairbanks Art and Nature Park: 100 Acres. The chosen applicant will be awarded a stipend to customize the interior of the island and implement their proposal during a residency.
