Park. The property features meadows, two small ponds, and a pine forest
with large walking paths. Please note: day visitors are welcome.
Overnight guests, and pets, are not permitted.

Artists must pay for their own travel expenses as well as expenses related to meals during their stay. Transportation from the Hudson Amtrak station, the Kingston bus station, or the Albany airport is available, as well as local transportation for groceries and supplies.
This is an international open call for proposals. Artists should either posses a significant body of past transmission-based work, or a compelling argument in support of their future work within the transmission art genre. Full-time students are ineligible; however, exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis for career artists who may have returned to school for post-graduate work.
Review & Notification Process
Applications will be evaluated in a peer review panel comprised of transmission artists, past residents, and Wave Farm staff. Finalists will be contacted for phone interviews, and notification will be made in March.
