SPACE on Ryder Farm, the non-profit artist residency program located on Ryder Farm, an idyllic 200 year-old working organic farm in Brewster, New York announced its 2016 season for The Working Farm, Family Residency, Creative Solutions Symposium and Artistic Residency programs at The Players Club. In attendence were Josh Charles, David Bar Katz, Michael Urie, and Marsha Norman, as well as 2016 SPACE residents Cusi Cram, Daisy Foote, Adam Rapp, and recipients of the inaugural Relentless Award--Clare Barron and Sarah DeLappe.

Founded in 2010 by Emily Simoness as a one-of-a-kind artistic home away from home for artists and innovators, SPACE on Ryder Farm counts among its alumni Academy Award winners, Tony Award nominees and winners, Pulitzer finalists, Guggenheim Fellows, Obie Award winners, and a MacArthur Genius Award winner.


"In a world that is increasingly fast-paced and distracted, it is more and more vital for artists and innovators to have time to slow down and grow something, be it their craft or a mission statement," said Executive Director Simoness. "We're thrilled to announce the 2016 residents at SPACE on Ryder Farm - individuals and companies who value the slower pace and literal and figurative space that time on Ryder Farm affords them."


Full list of residents available here.
