About the Artist Residency program

Overview

Established in 2011, the ASU Art Museum Artist Residency is a central reference and connection point for students, artists and cultural institutions in the Phoenix Metro area and encourages collaboration with research partners working in an array of disciplines at institutions across the region. Our Artist Residency offers a unique opportunity for emerging and established artists to develop and experiment with new bodies of work. We encourage artists to share their ideas with a new community over an extended period of time. Artists selected for the residency have a multi-disciplinary practice with a strong record of process-based, community and collaborative projects in order to explore forms of engagement and to develop socially-based, laboratory-type art projects. 

Resident artists and scholars are invited by the ASU Art Museum. There is no application process.

Facilities

The Artist Residency is housed at 821 N. 3rd St. in downtown Phoenix. The facility is a 10-unit shared property that hosts ASU Art Museum resident artists as well as long-term residents and guests. This is also where ASU Art Museum Project Space is located.

ASU Art Museum resident artists have access to a beautiful and cozy common room that has a full kitchen, large dining table, television, couches and a shared computer and color printer.

Each studio apartment also includes Wi-Fi, a small kitchen with basic dishes and cookware, private bathroom, bed, linens and work space.

ASU Art Museum Project Space is the public face of the Artist Residency and is available for public programming and events.
