Artist studios are accessible 24/7 and include freight and passenger elevator access, high ceilings, and natural light. Communal spaces include a kitchen, slop sinks, restrooms, and a sitting area with Wi-Fi.

The 2020–2021 Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program residency period will last from September 2020 through August 2021, with an open studios weekend held in the spring of 2021.​

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program has provided working studio space and community for artists since 1991. Artists are selected annually based on merit from a competitive pool of applicants by a professional jury comprised of artists and members of the Artists Advisory Committee.
