Equipping artists with private studio space and unlimited access to on-site resources, this unique program inducts select mid-career artists into Mana’s creative community


Established by curatorial director Ysabel Pinyol and curator Karline Moeller, Mana Residencies give local and international artists the opportunity to work at the organization’s prestigious New Jersey headquarters. The annual program provides a complimentary studio to five visual artists for one year. Participants are immersed in the art complex, which includes resources such as the Keating Foundry and the Gary Lichtenstein Editions print shop, as well as Mana’s art storage, handling, and framing services. Artists-in-residence also receive a strategic introduction to the curators, collectors, and other art world professionals who regularly visit the organization.
