Monson Arts Summer Design Residencies
Monson Arts is a new arts center in Monson, Maine. Programs include residencies for artists and writers, intensive shorter workshops, and educational partnerships with area secondary schools.

Monson Arts is partnering with RISD to offer two, month-long, design focused summer residencies. Design residents will focus on developing prototypes and designs, and experimenting with materials.

Both RISD residents will receive a $1,000 stipend, room and board, a private studio, and access to Monson Arts’ wood and metal working shops. Monson Arts has a studio technician on staff 20 hours a week who will provide support. In addition, residents have access to digital fabrication equipment at the Innovative Media and Research Center (IMRC) at the University of Maine in Orono, a partner of Monson Arts.

Monson is located at the edge of Maine’s North Woods, a 3.5 million acres of forest bordering Canada. It is the last town on the Appalachian Trail before the beginning of the 100-Mile Wilderness that leads to Mount Katahdin. Since it was founded in 1822, the community has had an economy based on natural resources. In the late 19th through the early 20th centuries, slate quarries supported a thriving industry. Moosehead Manufacturing produced wood furniture from the 1945 until its closure in 2007. The region also has a rich arts tradition: Henry David Thoreau wrote about the area in The Maine Woods, photographer Berenice Abbott lived in Monson and nearby Blanchard, and traditional makers are well establish in the area including the North Woods Canoe Company, Atkinson.
