Not for profit:

In 2014, Mount Auburn became the first cemetery in the United States to establish an artist residency program. Each year, the chosen artists are charged with creating an original, site-specific work inspired by an in-depth experience at the Cemetery that conveys a fresh and innovative perspective of Mount Auburn. 

The grant must result in a deliverable product, program, or event that is unique to Mount Auburn Cemetery. All projects will be presented to the public (how and when projects are presented is to be determined by the artist and the AiR Program manager).

Eligibility: you must live close enough to the Cemetery (580 Mt. Auburn St. in Cambridge, MA) to immerse yourself in the environment here. We encourage artists of all races, genders, orientations, backgrounds, and experience levels to apply. 

Parameters: If your proposal is accepted, you may not make extensive changes to the scale and/or scope of your project during your residency. However, minor adjustments will be permitted.

Award amount: $500 - $5,000
