Since 1968, the Studio Museum has earned recognition for its catalytic role in advancing the work of visual artists of African and Latino descent through its Artist-in-Residence program.

The program has supported over one hundred graduates who have gone on to highly regarded careers. Every year, the Museum offers an eleven-month residency with a bi-weekly stipend for three local, national or international emerging artists working in any media. Artists should not currently be in school or committed to another residency program while in the Studio Museum Artist-in-Residenceprogram.

The Artist-in-Residence application will be open from through April 1, 2016.

The Museum will accept online applications only and will require two recommendations, a resume and an artist statement (400 word limit). The application accepts 8–10 images, video and PDF files; no word docs please.
