BOLT is a one-year juried residency program for emerging and mid-career Chicago artists offers onsite studio space and monthly visits by influential artists and art professionals.
How the BOLT residency works
BOLT focuses on helping artists advance their career in an environment that allows for expansive thinking and opportunities to engage with co-residents in a group setting. Each of the six (6) selected residents will create artwork in a professional studio space at the Chicago Artists Coalition. CAC studios are an open-plan to foster connection and exchange between co-residents.
Additionally, residents have access to influential artists, curators, and educators through individual studio visits. All residents work towards the mounting of their solo exhibitions, which will be on view for six weeks.
BOLT residency provides:
- Six (6) professional open-plan onsite studios
- 400-square-foot gallery space for a solo exhibition
- Monthly studio visits by outside curators, artists, writers, and others
- The program is non-residential: no room/board is offered.
