Across the globe, as countries deal with the economic repercussions of the pandemic, education in the arts and career development initiatives for artists are becoming ever harder to access. With this in mind, we are determined to keep providing the opportunities afforded by our program in Spoleto and we appeal for your support.
Eva LeWitt and Guy Robertson
Directors, Mahler & LeWitt Studios
I think transformation, real transformation, occurs when you connect with a community. When a community reaches out its hands to you. … Being in Spoleto made me different. That’s really the highest compliment that I know how to pay.
— Polly Barton, Writer in Residence
Drawing on the legacies of Anna Mahler and Sol LeWitt, as well as the unique cultural heritage of Spoleto and the region, the Mahler & LeWitt Studios provides research and development opportunities for curators, writers and artists of all disciplines, particularly those who may benefit from phases of experimentation. We provide artists with sustained support through our Projects and Publications programs, with the intention of bringing new work, developed during our residencies, to international audiences.
What I have learnt in life so far, is how we can learn from life: how the silence of contemplation and self-reflection, as you look to make a difference in yourself, can reflect usefully out onto the world – if not today, then tomorrow. I think that is what the Mahler & LeWitt Studios residency program is all about.
— Brian O. Kepher, Composer in Residence

The group of artists and writers we gathered in Spoleto – to think, work, make, eat and live together – had a unique energy. Deep intellectual and artistic relationships were formed that have changed the way we move in the world.
