To apply, you must schedule to tour the facility on the third Saturday of the month (August 20) by phone to RSVP 415-330-1414. Must call to reserve--do not show up with a reservation!
Our advisory board, which is composed of former artists-in-residence, people in the arts community, environmentalists, and educators, reviews applications in October and selects eight to ten candidates to interview in November. Interviews are scheduled between 12:00 and 5:00 p.m. At that time, finalists must make a short presentation about their work. The board awards between four and eight residencies per year, depending on the number of part-time and full-time residencies allotted.
The board evaluates applications based on the artist's demonstrated commitment to resource conservation and recycling through art, their experience in art education and/or environmental education, how the residency can provide the artist with professional growth, the quality of previous work, and the artist's reputation and references. The board also considers the artist's use of materials and the types of tools available in the studio.
Eligibility: At this time, we only accept applications from local, career-level, professional artists. Students currently enrolled at any university, college, or other educational institution will not be considered. We do not accept applications from artists who reside a driving distance of more than one hour from San Francisco.
