There is no venue in New York City that has the potential creative flexibility that the Armory possesses. At a time when artists are searching for unconventional spaces and initiating large-scale mixed media projects, the Armory would fill a huge void in the City.
- Harvey Lichtenstein, President Emeritus, BAM

Park Avenue Armory’s Artist-in-Residence program hopes to offer artists a location within which they can research, create and develop individual projects, but also aims for residents to integrate with the overall cultural initiative taking place within the building.

The Armory offers a limited number of temporary artistic residencies annually. These residencies are by curatorial invitation only, and are predominantly for rehearsal and project development. Each residency involves at least one “open showing” or “artist talk” within the Armory, and all resident artists are asked to participate in the Armory’s education program.

Armory residencies are most appropriately suited to Performing and Media artists. However, artists working in a visual art are considered based on appropriate facilities and spaces available.
