MacDowell is a leading contemporary arts organization that provides essential support for artists by bringing together diverse, multidisciplinary talent to exchange ideas and pursue creative work. The preeminent artist residency program in the country, we have provided more than 8,400 emerging and established artists of exceptional talent with Fellowships that are awarded through a rigorous peer review process based solely on artistic talent.

Our Fellows have gone on to be recognized with 93 Pulitzer Prizes, 868 Guggenheims, 32 MacArthur grants, and numerous other prizes. By convening artists from seven disciplines on our 450-acre wooded property, MacDowell provides the ideal blend of solitude and dynamic community for artists to share ideas, realize creative breakthroughs, and produce enduring works of art.
