Our 2019-20 Artist in Residency is Kassie Woodworth. She is a graduate of the Herron School of Art and Design. The residency was created in 1996 to provide studio space and mentoring for emerging artists as a bridge opportunity for a career in the visual arts. The Stutz Artists Residency program is exclusively funded by artists for artists. This is one of the largest awards for visual artists in central Indiana. There are now over 30 alumni resident artists, and many continue to live, work and impact the arts in central Indiana.
The annual Stutz Artist’s Association Spring Open House raises funds to support this important program that includes a lease for dedicated studio space for eleven months in a clean, safe, and friendly working environment along with mentoring. The Open House serves as a key event for the Resident to show and sell the work they produce during their tenure.
Since its inaugural year in 1996, the residency program has provided in-kind contributions of more than $135,000 to 31 local artists. Artists who spent a formative year as a Stutz Resident are among the most well known, accomplished and respected professionals in Indianapolis’ arts community.
