Artist-in-residence available at Langdon House

April 15, 2016

Blue DancerHistoric New England is partnering with the New England Sculptors Association (NESA) to create a new artist-­in-­residence program especially for NESA members at Governor John Langdon House in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Building on the success of our highly successful collaborative exhibition, Sculpted Spaces, Historic Places, and workshops last year, Historic New England and NESA will launch the program this summer. For this first year, an artist who creates figurative-­style work will be selected to create a sculpture based on historical research conducted at Langdon House.

“NESA is very pleased to offer this artist-­in-­residence,” says Executive Director Marilyn Ewer. “It deepens our commitment to provide new opportunities for our members and to promote sculpture in New England and beyond.”

“The artist-­in-­residence will add an exciting new dimension to our programs and site interpretation,” says Linda Marshall, Historic New England's regional site manager for northern New England, who developed the idea. “The sculptor can use his or her creative imagination to illuminate an element of history that spans from 1784 through 1949.”

Sculptors interested in joining NESA to apply for this program or other professional development and exhibition opportunities can email Marilyn Ewer for more information or visit
