Video by Richard Goulis

Share the studio with other emerging and mid-level artists in pursuit of your own work. Forge, mold, weld, shape and create for a month or a year. The Steel Yard’s Residency Program assists artists in growing and strengthening their art practice in a supportive, cooperative environment through access to the studios, tools, resources, and support.

You’ll work alongside a cohort of artists and makers, take part in events and sales and be a creative leader in a vibrant community shop. Most of all, you’ll get an all-access pass to our 10,000 square foot industrial art studio.

If you’re looking to complete a specific project or prototype within a limited amount of time then consider applying for a  Micro-Residency or a Student Micro-Residency.
