The Arts Council of Princeton, housed in its renovated Paul Robeson Center in downtown Princeton (re-opened to the public in June 2008), established the Anne Reeves Artist-In-Residence Program in order to provide artists with opportunities to conceptualize and create new works while providing the community with opportunities for creative interaction with working artists in all disciplines.

The Paul Robeson Center for the Arts boasts 5 levels of studios for visual and performing arts, exhibition space, a state of the art theater and the ACP’s administrative offices. ACP Artists-In-Residence will be provided access to studio space according to their artistic discipline: ceramics, photography, digital arts, painting & drawing or dance/theater/inter-disciplinary arts. A multi-purpose studio, connected to a suite of rooms on the top floor, overlooking the bustling and historically significant intersection of Witherspoon Street and Paul Robeson Place, has been dedicated as the Anne Reeves Studio. This space will be available to Artists-In-Residence who need flexible space other than the specialized studios previously mentioned.

ACP resident artists have included:
Fall 2008 – Spring 2009: Charles Evered – playwright/filmmaker
Fall 2009: Dahlia Elsayed – mixed media/installation art
Fall 2010- Spring 2011: Rein Triefeldt – environmental / kinetic art
Spring 2011: Didier Civil – mask making/sculpture
Summer 2011: Josh Robinson – musician
Fall 2011: TJ Erdahl – ceramic sculpture
Spring 2012: Illia Barger – muralist
Fall 2012: Efrat Kedem – conceptual/video art
Spring 2013: Nancy Shill – collage artist
Fall 2013: James Christy – playwright

The Arts Council of Princeton accepts proposals for residencies for sessions from as short as one week up to six months. The ACP does not provide accommodations for out of town artists, so it is assumed that resident artists live within a reasonable driving distance of Princeton or have access to accommodations in the region. Each artist-in-residence will receive an honorarium, access to work space, performance and/or gallery space and an opportunity to interact with the community through workshops, classes, exhibitions, performances, lectures or public art projects appropriate to the artist’s particular medium.
