Artist-in-Residence Program Application

Now in its fifteenth year, the YAM’s Artist-in-Residence program is currently accepting applications. Enjoy 24-hour access to the 800 square-foot Gary and Melissa Oakland Artist in Residence Studio located in the Visible Vault. Connect with new audiences, expand your practice, and add the YAM’s seal of approval to your resume.

Artists-in-Residence are required to maintain regular studio hours (a minimum of 20 hours each week) and interact with occasional visitors and scheduled school tours. Housed in the Visible Vault alongside the Museum’s collection, there are some limitations in the use of media (no open flame, toxic fumes, dust, etc.).

Residents are selected based upon the merit of their work, their interest in public interaction, and the scope of their artistic investigation. To apply, please complete application below.
