Siennie Lee, a current graduate student in the Alfred/Düsseldorf Painting program of Alfred University’s School of Art and Design, has been selected for the prestigious and highly competitive artist residency program at the Fine Arts Work Center, in Provincetown, MA.

Since its creation 50 years ago, the Fine Arts Work Center Fellowship has become one of the leading residency programs in the world. Each year, the Work Center offers 20 seven-month residencies to a juried group of emerging visual artists, fiction writers, and poets, each of whom receive an apartment, a studio (for visual artists), and a monthly stipend of $1,000 plus an exit stipend. Residencies run from October 1 through April 30.

During this time, Fellows have the opportunity to pursue their work independently in a diverse and supportive community of peers. The Fine Arts Work Center has hosted more than 1,000 Fellows since 1968, nurturing an accomplished and far-reaching alumni network. The impact of the experience is best illustrated by the extensive list of awards Fellows have gone on to win, including the Guggenheim Fellowship, MacArthur Fellowship, Prix de Rome, Pulitzer Prize, and the Nobel Prize in Literature.
