The MacDowell Colony "is designed to facilitate a balance between a focus on work and interdisciplinary interaction. Private studios are available to artists 24 hours a day along with the dining and recreation rooms at Colony Hall, providing an environment adaptable to each individual's needs. To ensure the autonomy and privacy of all Colonists, no one may visit a studio without an invitation. Breakfast and dinner are served in the dining room while lunch is delivered to each studio. After dinner, occasional presentations are a traditional, elective part of the stimulating and supportive environment. Readings, slide shows, open studios, and informal performances allow Colonists to become acquainted with and inspired by one another's work. Friendships established among artists-in-residence often lead to collaborations and connections beyond the Colony.

"The maximum length of residence is two months; an average stay is four weeks. There are between 20 and 30 artists at MacDowell at any given time; arrivals and departures are ongoing." [1]
