RedLine engages approximately 15–20 artists at any given time who remain “in residence” for a two-year period. As part of the residency, artists receive free/subsidized studio space and professional support from RedLine’s staff, resource artists, and fellow residents. Interactivity and community engagement is a core element at RedLine: artists will experience frequent studio visits with curators, art professionals, and people in the creative industries. Artists will also participate in various educational programs, community events, and exhibitions, which provide exposure to new techniques, networks, and community engagement opportunities. The Artists-in-Residence Program is based upon an equitable selection process. It is important to note that artists are responsible for outfitting their studio with the necessary tools to produce their works. Housing during the two years is also the responsibility of the artists. RedLine does not have a wood shop, and use of toxic materials is only permitted outside of the premises. Visit the website for more information.
