Artists in Residence

Open Call for Artists: Printmaking Mini-Residencies

Deadline: March 8, 2019

Over the course of the summer (June 8 – August 26, 2019) our Glass Gallery will become a primitive printmaking studio and five local artists will get a chance to make and exhibit work during short, 9 day residencies. This residency is designed with both the amateur and professional printmaker in mind. However, participating artists must be self-contained and self-directed. The Art Center will not be able to provide materials other than a press, tables, water, basic supplies, and a small honorarium for transportation and additional supplies.

Creative Ecology Residency (ended 2017)

Creative Ecology is an innovative art and science residency program that promotes learning about and appreciation of the natural world through the creative process, engaging artists, art and science educators, and the larger community. A collaboration between the Palo Alto Art Center and the Junior Museum & Zoo, the program intends to showcase the similarities between artists and scientists and demonstrate how both use similar tools to experiment and learn about the world around them. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
