Call for applications – The Max Thelen Studio Residency

Presented by Art Works Downtown at Art Works Downtown, San Rafael CA

May 22 2020
Call for applications – The Max Thelen Studio Residency

One-year free work-studio residency for early-stage career-committed visual artists

Residency dates:  August 1, 2020 – July 30, 2021

Entries Due:  May 22, 2020 (CaFÉ)

The Max Thelen Studio Residency provides a quality work and display space for an emerging artist to create artwork and receive community support. The Residency includes a free art studio for 12 months as well as many additional benefits. Ideal candidates live in Marin, or have significant ties to Marin, and can commit to regularly using the studio and participating in the program activities.

Art Works Downtown offers a diverse mix of studio artists and mediums in the heart of the San Rafael commercial core for almost daily interaction with the public. The Max Thelen Studio is a small, bright studio located on the prime street-level floor of the AWD complex. Art Works Downtown believes that an emerging artist will stimulate new ideas among established AWD studio artists and vice versa. Our community will be better served as they recognize and understand the importance of supporting emerging artists in their career endeavors.

COVID-19 DISCLAIMER:  Dear applicants, please note that AWD will continue with the selection process and will coordinate with the approved applicant if the art center is closed—or suffers from complications—due to Shelter in Place ordinance. AWD encourages you to apply and appreciates your flexibility and understanding through this challenging time. Be safe and stay creative.
