The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program awards rent-free non-living studio space to 17 visual artists for year-long residencies in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
The program is open to professional visual artists, 21 years or older who live in the US, as well as US citizens or permanent residents living abroad. Applicants may not be enrolled in any degree program, current participants in a Walentas-affiliated program, participate in any other residency program, or maintain a separate studio during their residency. The studio program is open to eligible artists nationwide. Artists are responsible for their own housing.
Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program residents are selected annually based on merit from a competitive pool of applicants by a professional jury.
