SPACES Artist-in-Residency Program

The SPACES Artist Residency brings artists in residence and community members together to nurture the creation of SPACE — space to create, to dream, to build, and to transform physical landscapes — in North Central Philadelphia.
Cycle 2 SPACES Visiting Artists will live at The Village of Arts and Humanities for six months in a creatively renovated row home. They will lead a core team of Neighborhood Artists (community members nominated by peers and Village staff) to co-design and execute a transformative artistic project that addresses issues of social equity in our community.
Artists will receive an honorarium — independent of project costs — of $15,000 for a six-month period. If the residency period is extended by mutual agreement between artists and The Village, then the honorarium will be increased to reflect this change.
We invite a new generation of artists to continue The Village’s legacy; one that supports and encourages students and community members to utilize artistic skill and creative problem solving in activating spaces in our neighborhood—both physical and imagined.

The Cooper Union Artist Residency – Summer 2015

The Cooper Union is pleased to offer four artist residencies within the Summer Art Intensive Program. The fellowships will be given to outstanding visual artists who will spend one month, July 1-30, on-campus developing a new project in the Painting and Drawing department. The residency, which began in 1993, was created to support teaching artists whose professional practice in action, would contribute to the education of the summer program students. The residency provides spacious, sky lit professional studios, and an exhibition honoring the residents’ work. The exhibition will be organized by the Cooper Union immediately following the residency in conjunction with the pre-college program. The artists in residence will be asked to informally present their work to the summer program students and faculty, and are welcome to participate in guest lectures, critiques, and other events.
