Intro
The 92NY Jewelry Center Residency is a juried residency for cutting-edge, emerging and established jewelry artists to develop their work in the multifaceted New York City art scene. For a month from August 19 to September 15, 2024. The Residency will provide the opportunity for an international artist with a studio based practice to develop a new body of work or complete research while engaging with New York's cultural community.
The International Jewelry Residency includes a studio apartment in the  92NY Residence, 24-hour private studio working space and travel expenses to and from New York City.
This Residency offers the opportunity for an artist to share with the New York City design community their different aesthetic, technical or design impetus through a required 2-day lecture and workshop at 92NY Jewelry Center during the last weekend of the residency and through professional meetings with participating cultural institutions while expanding their artistic and professional opportunities.


Eligibility
Residencies are intended as professional development opportunities for jewelers and metalsmiths. Proposals for self-directed, creative residencies must be compatible with available working studio spaces, facilities, and resources. Artistic merit and promise are the basis for selections but the relevancy of how the New York City environment will affect the artist’s work is weighed highly in the selection process.

Awards
A rotating panel of experts and professionals in the arts and humanities independently review applications and supporting materials.
The International Jewelry Residency is for an individual artist and is not open to couples or collaborators. Unfortunately, the residency cannot accommodate spouses, children or partners during the term of the stay.


Jonathan Wahl, Director of 92NY’s Jewelry Center said, “Now in its fifth year, this residency is unique—the only one solely devoted to jewelry artisans and based in NYC, and we look forward to welcoming another artist.
