During these weeks, Work Center apartments are available for rent at a reduced weekly rate (please note partial week rentals are not available). Apartments are lovely and rustic.

Apartments do not have phones, televisions, or air conditioners (fans are provided). Visual arts studios are also available for an additional cost.

If you book different apartments for any week, you will need to find your own accommodation for the Saturday evenings.

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the Work Center property, indoors or outdoors, or on the adjoining residential streets, Pearl Street and Fishburn Court. With the exception of licensed service animals (as defined by the ADA), pets are not permitted at the Work Center. Note: If you plan on bringing your licensed service animal, you will be asked to provide a copy of your service animal’s registration papers.


We cannot accommodate requests for a specific visual arts studio.

Residents must bring their own sheets (size double), pillows, blankets, towels, and toiletries.

Check-in is on Sunday between 4-6 PM and check-out is on Saturday by noon. (If you book different apartments for different weeks, you will need to find your own accommodation for Saturday evening).

We are unable to accommodate early arrivals or late departures.

Residents are expected to check out on time and leave the apartment clean.


The laundry room will be available for a few hours on select evenings. No staff will be present to make change so please bring quarters.


Policies below are for the registrant as well as any guests that may join them during their stay at the Fine Arts Work Center.

As public health recommendations continue to evolve, the Fine Arts Work Center will continue to be responsive to changing public health guidelines and protocols in order to keep our community safe.

For Fall 2022, we will require all guests over the age of five to present proof of vaccination, and for guests 12 and up, proof of vaccine and booster (if eligible). Additionally, we anticipate that we will require all guests to wear a properly fitted mask when indoors—including studios, gallery, bookstore, and common room. The only exceptions to this rule will be for children under two.

We will also require all guests to sign a Covid-19 Waiver of Liability and Indemnity at check-in and provide proof of a negative rapid test within 24 hours of arrival.

In the event of cancellation of The Fall 2022 Returning Residency by either a governing body or the Fine Arts Work Center due to public health mandates, you will be able to defer payment to 2023, or you will be eligible for a full refund.

If you need to cancel your attendance due to a positive COVID test, you will be able to defer payment to Spring or Fall 2023 or be eligible for a full refund with proof of a positive test.

If you choose to cancel your attendance for any other reason, our cancellation policy remains as it always has:

If you cancel three weeks or more before the residency start date, you will receive a full refund minus a $75 cancellation fee. If you cancel less than three weeks prior to the residency start date, you will forfeit your payment in full.
