CALL TO ARTISTS: Habitat for Artists Project Residency

Helen Day Art Center invites submissions for the Habitat for Artists project residency. From July 15th to September 25th, three 6’ x 6’ x 8’ constructions will be built and placed in Stowe, Morrisville, and Waitsfield, Vermont. Over the course of the residency, artists will inhabit these buildings, making their own work in the public realm, thus allowing for discussion with passersby. Artists have the opportunity to work with partnering organizations: River Arts, in Morrisville; Yestermorrow and Vermont Festival of the Arts, in Waitsfield; and Helen Day Art Center, in Stowe. Please visit for more detailed information and to explore the history of the project. Contact curator Rachel Moore with questions at

HFA is a collective project that uses the idea of the artist’s studio as a catalyst for mutual engagement between artists and communities.
