3 Months of Rent-Free Studio Space for Artists at The Midway

Overview
The mission of The Midway’s Artist Studio Residency (MASR) program is to forge a relationship between local artists and The Midway. As a venue that promotes artistic relevancy and cultural necessity, The Midway offers a studio space free of rent to each participating artist in exchange for:

Monthly workshops
Works of art
Curated exhibitions in The Midway Gallery
Promotions

The Midway’s Artist Studio Residency will also exist as an Exhibition Program that focuses on engaging the public and revealing the art-making process through exhibitions, events, talks, publications, and other opportunities. The program is open to artists of all generations, nationalities, and disciplines. Applicants must be 21 years or older.

Who: 2 early to mid-career artists working across all mediums.  Priority given to artists living in San Francisco.

Length: 3 months including a 4-6 week final exhibition

Participation:
MASR participants must make a serious commitment to the program for the entire three month residency. Participants are expected to utilize the studio actively and consistently (artists should be in their studios an average of 20–40 hours per week). In addition, regular attendance and participation in all MASR related public programs is required.

The Midway is seeking autonomous, self-leading artists who work well in a non-traditional environment.  

It is vital to the success of the program that MASR participants take full advantage of the unique resources The Midway is able to provide. For this reason, MASR participants cannot simultaneously participate in another residency or degree-granting program.  

What is provided as part of The Midway Artist Studio Residency:
24/7 access* to a studio at The Midway
10' x 10' private studio
Work tables and chairs
Natural and florescent lighting
Wi-Fi

*(with the exception of full-venue buyouts, which may occur during residency)  

Please note:
Housing is NOT provided – artists must secure their own accommodation for the duration of their residency
Studios facilities do not offer access to medium- or technique-specific amenities such as a wood shop, print or media lab, or a dance floor – please take this into consideration in preparing your proposal and residency goals.
Artists must provide their own tools and materials; restrictions apply.
Artists must be at least 21 years old.
Artists may not have access to their studio in the case of venue buyouts or other restricted and/or private events.

Community Building & Professional Development: An integral aspect of The Midway Artist Studio Residency is the opportunity to grow both a network of peers, curators, educators, and other arts professionals working in San Francisco.
To support this initiative, each participating artist is asked to lead a minimum of two events and/ or workshops.  These workshops will be open to the public with revenue from ticket sales going to The Midway. Artists are also required to provide artwork, made while in-residency, for a group show at the end of the residency.  

Publicity: Permission for The Midway to post and share photographs and written promotions of participating artists, ongoing artwork, and studios is required.  

Stipend: No stipend is provided
