The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) is now accepting applications for the 2017 session of The Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists in Brittany, France.

The selection committee seeks four to eight artists whose mix of media, approaches, styles and focus will create a dynamic and collegial community. In particular, we are looking for artists who can use the specific character of our residency experience productively. The residency is open to all practicing visual artists regardless of affiliation or citizenship who are not students at the time of application. Competitive residencies are open to all practicing non-student visual artists and artist-couples working in any media and regardless of their affiliation and nationality.

The Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists provides time for uninterrupted work in an inspiring and historic setting made unique by Brittany’s extraordinary light, distinctive landscape and rich cultural traditions. The program awards successful applicants with free housing and studio space in the village of Léhon. Residents are responsible for most meals and incidental expenses. MICA charges no fees for application to or participation in the Alfred and Trafford Klots International Program for Artists.
