Artists of all visual art disciplines - painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation, new media - will be considered for below-market-rate studio spaces to produce new work and make use of resources needed to support their creative practice. Studios will be accessible from 10am to 10pm, seven days a week for one year, with a second-year renewal option. These non-living studios, in an open plan with windows in each unit, vary in size from 250 to 400 sq ft. Artists will have the opportunity to present their work to curators and critics, and to be exposed to a broader general audience during annual open Studio events. Residency participants will be encouraged to engage with students and community-program participants throughout the year.

Due to the financial and health related hardships of the COVID-19 Pandemic, BRAC is offering a 15% discount on our below-market-value rates for the first 6 months that range in price from $360 - $470, down from $425 - $550 a month. 

Artists will be selected based on their portfolio of work, statement of intent, and an expressed interest to work within the Bronx community. Applicants will be reviewed by a diverse independent selection panel composed of artists, curators, and arts professionals. The program is seeking artists with a developed studio practice, and who are not enrolled in a college or university degree-granting program. BRAC does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, or sexual orientation. 

Next Application Review will be in January, 2021.
