40th Street Artist-in-Residence Program

40th Street Artist-in-Residence Program

This Deadline Expired: Monday, June 17, 2019

Visual Artists! Want a free studio for a year? 

 The mission of the 40th Street Artist-in-Residence Program is:
 •   To address the need for studio space in West Philadelphia by offering studios rent-free, on a rotating basis, to visual artists who reside in/are strongly affiliated with Philadelphia neighborhoods west of the Schuylkill River.
•   To assist in the career growth of new and emerging artists and those whose work has not been recognized in mainstream venues.
•   To enrich the 40th Street area by placing artists here and allowing them to share their talents with members of our community.
What you get and what you give:
If accepted, you will be given a studio space at either 4007 Chestnut Street or 4013 Chestnut Street beginning September 1, 2019 and ending August 15, 2020. You will be encouraged to use that time to develop your own creative work. In exchange, you will be asked to share your talents with West Philadelphia through the quality-equivalent of about 40 hours of outreach service over the course of the residency. Examples of outreach projects include a public installation, a workshop, or a class. You may work at a school, prison, hospital, nursing home, etc. Administrative and modest financial support will be provided. In addition, all residents will have opportunities to work together to plan group exhibitions.  Monthly resident meetings (or fewer/more when necessary) will facilitate this while creating opportunities to foster community within the program. In addition to collaborating with your fellow residents, a student intern and a part-time facilitator will help to coordinate efforts, including outreach, gallery activities, publicity, maintenance, etc.
