Old Furnace Artist Residency


The Old Furnace Artist Residency is an ongoing artist project curated by Jon Henry. The residency is located in Harrisonburg, Virginia. It is open to all forms of artistry: sculpture, painting, video, sound, conceptual, poetry, fiction writers, critical theorists etc. Special attention is given to practices which are focused on social justice and being socially engaged. Emerging artists are especially encouraged to apply.

O.F.A.R. seeks to expose/engage artists to/with (rural) communities. The residency is at no cost to the participating artists but they will need to provide their own transit to Harrisonburg; Participating artists are asked to donate one piece of art to the residency in exchange for the room, board, and food. This art collection will be used for future exhibitions and OFAR projects/publications. The ultimate goal is to donate the residency’s collection to a permanent museum or archive. Collaborative projects with Jon are encouraged but not required.
