Peck Ledge
Lighthouse Residency

The Norwalk Art Space Peck Ledge Lighthouse Residency aims to provide an exciting opportunity for artists to find inspiration and solace in a historical and unique structure that rises directly out of the Long Island Sound. Its beautifully renovated Interior has a 360-degree view of the Connecticut and Long Island coastlines. While there are certain logistical and environmental restrictions in providing access, once on site, we want artists’ imaginations to run wild.  If you or an artist you know are looking for a place that challenges your artistic journey, look no further: we’re here and we can’t wait to see what you can create.
