CURRENT & FORMER RESIDENTS

The Anderson Center is continues to monitor information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, including recommendations from the MN Governor’s office, the CDC and the MN Dept. of Health. A shortened residency season did take place in 2020, with the organization hosting smaller groups of three artists at a time from within 100 miles of Red Wing. All artists originally selected for 2020 residencies in March that were unable to participate due to the pandemic, have been rescheduled for 2021.

The 2021 residency season is proceeding with an approach and protocol developed an ad hoc board/staff committee and approved by the organization's board of directors. With vaccinations and rapid testing readily available, the Center is hosting cohorts of four artists at a time from within the continental US. 2021 international residencies have been rescheduled for 2022. Artists selected for the 2020 season that have been rescheduled for 2021 may also opt to defer to 2022.
