Zócalo’s Artist-in-Residence program will debut this summer by offering three residences on the beautiful campus of Zócalo Apartments located in the emerging Spring Branch area of Houston, Texas.
Three artists chosen by an expert panel of local curators and a public vote will be granted no-cost housing and exhibition space on campus. A single one year and two six-month residencies will be available each annual cycle.
On a monthly basis, artists will have the opportunity for art shows on the property and participate in public engagement events with Zócalo’s residents and the greater Spring Branch community. Given the ample size of the Zócalo campus, artists who work in larger, exterior scales will be welcome to push the boundaries of their creativity by creating installations to be displayed on the exterior of buildings or on Zócalo’s large central lawn.
The end of each residency will result in a solo-exhibition featuring works created throughout the residency period. Artists working in all visual mediums are welcome to apply.
