BRAC Artist Studio Program

This Deadline Expired: Friday, January 22, 2021

The Artist Studios Program at BRAC is BACK! 

Applications are currently being accepted for the Bronx River Art Center’s next quarterly review of new studio applicants. Next deadline for application materials is on January 22, 2021 with a move-in date of March 1, 2021.

To apply please refer to the following Guidelines and instructions to fill out an Application form.

Email opencall@bronxriverart.org with questions.

Artists of all visual art disciplines – painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation, new media – will be considered for below-market-rate studio spaces to produce new work and make use of resources needed to support their creative practice. Access to workspaces are daily from 10am-10pm on weekdays, 10am-8pm on Saturdays and 10am-5pm on Sundays for one year, with a second-year renewal option. These non-living studios, in an open plan with windows in each unit, vary in size from 250 to 400 sq ft. Artists will have the opportunity to present their work to curators and critics, and to be exposed to a broader general audience during annual open Studio events. Residency participants will be encouraged to engage with students and community-program participants throughout the year.

Due to the financial and health related hardships of the COVID-19 Pandemic, BRAC is offering a 15% discount on their below-market-value rates for the first 6 months that range in price from $360 – $470, down from $425 – $550 a month. 

Artists will be selected based on their portfolio of work, statement of intent, and an expressed interest to work within the Bronx community. Applicants will be reviewed by a diverse independent selection panel composed of artists, curators, and arts professionals. The program is seeking artists with a developed studio practice, and who are not enrolled in a college or university degree-granting program. BRAC does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, or sexual orientation. 

Next Application Review will be in January 22, 2021.
