AIR Serenbe, the nonprofit artist residency program of the Serenbe Institute, invests in artists of all disciplines. We provide the time and space necessary for the development of new work, as well as focused public programming that brings audiences in close contact with creative processes and practices.
AIR Serenbe hosts residencies that give artists time and space without the requirement of a work product. They have grown from housing artists in resident's homes to hosting over 100 artists in live/work cottages that the Institute funded in 2017.
Artists stay in live/work cottages designed by Rural Studio, the award-winning program of Auburn University's School of Architecture. Our two cottages, located at The Art Farm at Serenbe, are models from Rural Studio's 20K House line.
Seasonally, we make a container studio available for use by artists who wish to work larger. The container studio is a raw but light-filled space for exploration and installation in the scale of an 8ft x 40ft shipping container. Depending on the interests and projects of each artist, the studio can be opened to the public for open studio visits.
