Studios include: papermaking, printmaking, darkrooms (silver and handmade), Mac lab (including scanners, inkjet printers), video editing lab, photo studio, ceramics studio, woodshop, book arts studio, and sculpture located on both both campuses of College of St. Benedict and Saint John’s University.
Visiting artists will be housed in an apartment at the Collegeville Institute near the campus of Saint John’s University.
The Collegeville Institute was designed by the world-class architect Marcel Breuer, and consists of a lakeside cluster of ten apartments and an administrative center. The apartments vary in size from one to three bedrooms and are assigned according to family needs. The apartments are fully furnished, with central heating, air conditioning, brick fireplace, and wireless Internet. A community kitchen, lounge, library, chapel, and laundry are also available.
Visiting artists will be able to work in a spacious loft studio at the Art Center, Saint John’s University, where they will have access to art studio classrooms and labs for printmaking, video, sculpture, and photography. The 918 sq. ft. studio has a high ceiling, excellent natural lighting, movable furnishings for working and storage, adjustable spotlights, a sitting area, a sink, wi-fi and Internet access, restrooms nearby, and 24/7 access. A 4.8′ x 6.6′ barn door into the adjacent gallery does permit transporting larger work into the space by a portable lift, but because the studio is upstairs and otherwise accessible only by a spiral staircase, there is limited access.
