Set on 1,000 acres of wetland, hills, and farmland, the residency facilities include expansive communal work-spaces, a screen-printing studio, wood shop, ceramics studio, fibers studio, an art and tech facility, and a sound studio. Shared accommodations are furnished with bathrooms, kitchenettes, and decks. All meals are provided and are prepared daily using ingredients grown in the surrounding area.
Each resident is offered an exhibition opportunity at ACRE’s 1000 square foot gallery or one of a number of alternative exhibition spaces ACRE has partnered with in Chicago.
