Unique studio residency opportunity for civically-minded artist

Chicago Art Department’s Residency Program aims to support growth opportunities for artists. As part of the application process, artists are asked to identify goals for their practice, strategies for community engagement, and plans for exhibitions and events. At the end of each term, Resident Artists revisit goals to identify areas of growth while defining next steps for their practice – at CAD or elsewhere. Artists may also choose to apply as a Co-Lab artist which is a residency program for more established/independent artists (same application below).

If accepted for a CAD residency, the artist will pay a subsidized, monthly fee of $525 which is approximately half of the market rate. In exchange for the monthly fees, artists have 24/7 access to CAD’s studio space, galleries to curate/host exhibitions, event spaces, and support to take home 100% of sales/profits/revenue from any resident-led programs.

The available studio is approximately 230ft2. Contact for any questions. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Apply here:
