Event History

Since the mid-nineteenth century, Newport has attracted influential artists, writers, architects, and designers who were inspired by the natural beauty of this ocean front community. Newport’s unique history along with its rich tapestry of architecture, arboreta, and cultural organizations in addition to the Newport Art Museum’s permanent collection and archives offer many avenues for reflection and inspiration.

What Makes this event different?

The Newport artist residency, AiR/Newport is designed to encourage the creative, intellectual, and personal growth of emerging and established visual artists and designers by giving them the time, space, and solitude needed to create, apart from the daily demands of production and deadline. We value art and artists as essential components of a vibrant, healthy, and informed community and therefore consider some type of community engagement activity by the resident artists / designers a priority.

The mission of the Newport Art Museum is to champion a provocative diversity of creative voices and experiences within a historic Newport setting, thus sparking reflection, inspiration, discovery, and connection to ourselves, our community and our world.
