Residencies in Review

By Rachael Small

In the early 1900s, a number of organizations in the US and abroad began inviting musicians, painters, sculptors, and writers to participate in residency programs aimed at bringing these artists out of their cafés and studios and into nature, to share the experience of creation. From these romantic beginnings, artist-in-residency programs have taken on a wide variety of forms, from idyllic colonies in the forest to state-sponsored urban retreats. The modern residency has also come to recognize the artistic production of the translator and the many ways literary translations benefit from travel.
