The VisArts Studio Artist Program provides four opportunities for individual artists or collaborative artist teams to experiment, create new work, evolve an existing body of work or develop a project in a stimulating, supportive environment. The Studio Artist Program encourages interaction, critical dialogue, and creative exploration. All artists who have studios at VisArts participate in the program and engage the public through exhibitions, open studios, and artist talks. The Studio Artist Program is a community of artists based on generosity, respect, and creativity.
