Description
The Spudnik Press Cooperative Residency Program supports a broad range of artists including artists working in communities outside of the Chicago area. Resident Artists will bring new resources, perspectives, and professional connections to the various audiences that Spudnik Press serves, including first-time printmaking students, emerging artists, professional artists, art collectors and supporters. Through integrating the production of innovative and well-executed print-based work with public programming and educational opportunities, the Residency Program strives to increase public awareness and appreciation of printmaking and its role in contemporary art practices. Artists can apply for residencies of 2 to 6 weeks in duration, local artists are encouraged to apply for the maximum time. Spudnik Press Cooperative encourages applications from artists from all backgrounds, including underrepresented groups that include (but are not limited to) artists of color, LGBTQ artists, women artists, and artists with disabilities.
