The Steel Yard’s residency program can assist you in growing and strengthening your creative industrial art practice. Residents receive an all-access pass to our 10,000 square foot studio, tools, resources, and community. Take an online tour of the studio here!
You’ll forge, mold, weld, shape, and create in a shared studio space alongside a cohort of artists and makers who work in the industrial arts. Additionally, you’ll participate in events and sales, exhibit work, have access to professional development opportunities, teach and take courses, as well and take part in cross-departmental critiques.
We offer short term and long term residency options; ranging from one month to one year. 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.
RESIDENCY INFO SESSION
Join us on Wednesday, March 31st, from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm for a streaming information session regarding the upcoming residency season.
