– Students: Program residents are selected, on the basis of portfolios and recommendations, from art programs nationally and internationally. They are extraordinarily motivated and committed to their work.
– Facilities: Over the past several years we have raised more than 7.5 million dollars to expand our studio and exhibition facilities in painting, drawing, sculpture/installation, ceramics and printmaking. Studios are open 24/7. Each student has their own partitioned space in addition to shared group facilities in painting, drawing, printmaking, ceramics and sculpture.
– Galleries: Every summer 10 contemporary exhibitions are presented in our museum quality galleries, including the annual student exhibition. Artists included in recent exhibitions include Lynda Benglis, Jasper Johns, Lee Krasner, Mel Bochner, Philip Guston, Louise Bourgeois, Cy Twombly, Robert Mangold, Alex Katz, Polly Apfelbaum, Alfred Jensen, Richard Serra, Donald Sultan, Nancy Graves, Franz Kline, Susan Rothenberg, Richard Diebenkorn, Beverley Pepper, Keith Haring, Mia Westerlund Roosen, and many others.
– Performances: Chautauqua also offers multiple resources not available in other summer art programs. Working alongside studio art participants are apprentices in dance, music, theater and opera. A professional symphony performs three nights each week in our 5,000 seat amphitheater, and theater, opera and dance productions are presented throughout the summer. There are nightly performances with popular entertainers and guest artists, and the historic Chautauqua lecture series, regularly broadcast on NPR, takes place every morning.
