ABOUT MARBLE HOUSE PROJECT
Marble House Project fosters the exchange of ideas through Artist Residencies, Sustainable Agriculture and Community Engagement. 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 accepts approximately 52 artists a year for individual 23 day residencies. Each resident is provided with a private studio space, room and board.
During residencies, artists are invited to engage with the local community by sharing their work at one of our weekly Art-seed events. Artists may also participate in sustainability workshops, volunteer on the farm, and take weekly yoga classes. While our residency is uniquely suited for artists interested in sustainable practice there are no requirements that a resident must fullfill. Applicants are selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and the potency of the project they intend to create while at Marble House Project.
Our Artist in Residency Program runs from April 24 - October 25th. During this period we offer one FAMILY FRIENDLY residency for artists with children. This residency is 16 days long, during which time we provide a summer camp for children 4-14 years of age. LEARN MORE

The curatorial field has expanded rapdily in the last decade. Today's curators are largely independent and build exhibitions, programming and publications for museums, galleries, biennials, projetct spaces and the web. The institutional support for curatorial research must respond to the significant cultural impact of independent curators today.
Our Curatorial Residency will run alongside our Artist Residency Program from April 24- October 25. Curators will be given private bedroom in the Maley-Leferve house and a studio space with wireless internet access. Curators are also welcome to apply for the Family Friendly Residency LEARN MORE

Residents and their families have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of our agriculture program and learn more about sustainability and food production. MHP offers field trips for families to travel to local farms and museums. Artists in residence present their work to the community through open studios and ART-Seed, our Tuesday night presentation series. LEARN MORE
The commercialization of nutrition has led to an industry that substitutes bioavailable nutrients for a long list of preservatives and additives. In this culture of non-food, our chefs are a beacon of hope for a future of healthy eating. With that in mind, we founded a Chef Residency Program to provide chefs an opportunity for experimentation and growth and inspire our community to embrace a more DIY approach to the kitchen.
Our Chef Residency provides chefs a test kitchen, ingredients (wherever possible from our organic farm) and a restaurant for bi-weekly meals. The Chef Residency runs concurrently with the artist residency program. LEARN MORE
