Marble House Project is a multi-disciplinary artist residency program that fosters collaboration & the exchange of ideas by providing an environment for artists across disciplines to live and work side by side. Our residency program is uniquely curated to bring together a diverse group of artists to facilitate exchange of different expertise, histories, techniques and perspectives.  With a focus on conservation of natural resources, integration of small-scale organic food production and the arts, residents sustain their growth by cultivating and participating in the surrounding grounds, working on their artistic vision and forging partnerships within the community. Marble House Project is founded on the belief that the act of creating, whether in the studio or in nature, is how human potential expands and community thrives.



Marble House Project launched the Artist Residency Program in the Spring of 2014.  Each year, Marble House Project hosts six 24-day residency sessions a year and one 17-day residency for artists and their families. In its first three years, the Artist Residency Program welcomed 140 artists from 25 countries working in film and video, literature, visual arts, music and composition and dance and performance.

This year, Marble House Project launched two new residency programs: The Chef Residency Program and The Collaborative Residency Program.   


Sustainable Practice

Marble House Project is committed to sustainable practice and the conservation of natural resources. On our farm, we strive to grow as much of our own organic food as possible to meet the needs of our residency program and events we host within our facility. We respect our soil and watershed, so we never use chemical fertilizers or pesticides.  We maintain a low-waste campus by conserving water and energy, composting, recycling and locally sourcing materials and labor.  Many of our residents choose to deepen their awareness of our practices by participating in the planting and harvesting in our gardens.  


Community engagement

Community outreach is a form of sustainable action that regenerates the creative process and allows for sharing new information with the community that can exponentially grow beyond our campus.  Community engagement not only takes place within our residency program but with our local population as well.   In 2015 Marble House Project launched ART-Seed, a weekly public program which introduces our residents to the community through concerts, performances, studio visits and lectures.  MHP also offers yoga, garden tours, culinary workshops and farm to table dinners from May through October and a variety of artist-led workshops throughout the year.  MHP has partnered with Hills Alive SoVT, a consortium of Southern Vermont’s most prestigious arts organizations to bring a rich and diverse calendar of cultural events and opportunities to the Green mountains.
