Supporting the Visual & Literary Artists of New York State

The Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts supports New York State artists and writers through two key programs held at our property in Ithaca, New York: our juried summer residency program and our self-directed, do-it-yourself retreats.

Our summer residencies run from May to September each year. (June to October in 2021.) Our residencies, or Fellowships, are competitive, stipend-supported, and inclusive.

Between October and April, we offer our five private apartments and studios on a first-come, first-served basis to residency alumni, our local arts community, and any dedicated writer or artist from around the state. This program is not juried but does require a statement of purpose.
