Shunpike introduces a new Artist-in-Residence program in Seattle, WA. Artists selected for this exciting opportunity will work in a Seattle-area corporate campus in an on-site art studio. This studio is located in the bustling South Lake Union neighborhood. The residency is open to visual artists based in the Greater Pacific Northwest and was created to provide regional artists with a unique, temporary work environment and exposure to a new audience. The program will provide space for engaging dialogue and inspiring creative expression with employees and visitors.
There is a total of 4 residencies available in three-month increments, with the first residency starting November 1, 2017. Artists selected for the 2017-18 residency program will receive $10,000 in project support. Participants are expected to commit a minimum of 8 hours per week in studio over a three-month period, as well as hold an in-house master class and lecture during their residency. Artists are also asked to exhibit current work on site, and contribute a current piece to the Seattle-area corporate collection.
The Request for Proposals opens today, August 8, 2017. The call for artists will close on September 24, 2017.
