The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program awards rent-free studio space to 17 visual artists for year-long residencies. The program is in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, home to art galleries, independent restaurants and shops, and creative professionals. Studios are near public parks, the city waterfront, and many forms of transit.
Artist studios are accessible 24/7 and include freight and passenger elevator access, high ceilings, and natural light.
The 2021–2022 Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program residency period will last from September 2021 through August 2022, with an open studios weekend planned for spring 2022.
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 comprising artists and members of the Artists Advisory Committee.
Deadline: Monday, February 15, 2021, 11:59pm EST
