Through this program, ASLD hosts a Visiting Artist who identifies as Black, Indigenous, and/or a person of color for a 6-9 month long residency. The residency offers the artist access to dedicated studio space at ASLD; the opportunity to lead workshops, lectures, and community engagement programs; and culminates with a solo exhibition of work created throughout the residency.
Each residency is tailored to the artist’s expertise and discipline. Selected artists lead workshops specific to themes and issues of importance to Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color and other underrepresented communities. Selected artists have a dedicated 900 sq ft studio at the Art Students League of Denver for the duration of their residency. The studio can be equipped with equipment appropriate to the resident artist’s practice (necessary equipment is covered by ASLD as part of our grant funding for this project). Artist has access to classes and instruction offered at ASLD. Artists will receive a monthly stipend to cover housing and living expenses as well as studio materials. The budget for housing costs and living expenses is determined based on Denver market rates at the time of the residency. Staff is available to assist with securing housing if desired. Details about the monthly stipend are available upon request.
