Studio 3325 is an Artist-In-Residence program at Grace Church of Logan Square. Its mission is to be an inviting space that challenges artists to explore new forms of creation while engaging with the neighborhood and the community of Grace Church Logan Square.
The Details: Studio 3325 accepts two artists per year: one during the spring season and one during the fall season. Each artist has unlimited access to a studio space within the church for six months. At the start of their residency, a small exhibition of the artist’s previous work will be installed at the church and will continue to be on view for the duration of the residency.
Studio 3325 goals: Grace is a welcoming and inviting congregation and we ask that the artist in residence have the same welcoming nature. We are a diverse community and have varied understandings of faith and spirituality. Therefore, we invite people of all faith and non-faith backgrounds to apply to this unique program. Grace is looking for working artists who are interested in being engaged with the community of Chicago and our congregation on an intellectual level. Artists working with social justice issues—particularly with the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as issues of race, class, poverty, and homelessness—are strongly encouraged to apply. It is our belief that art plays an integral role in understanding people, communities, and spirituality, and our goal is to create more discussions on these topics in Logan Square.
Requirements: In exchange for the free studio space, the artist is required working on site one Sunday morning per month (10:30am-12pm) to be accessible to answer questions or show their work to members of Grace Church. The artist also is required to help organize a minimum of one community event related to their practice in the church during the residency. The nature of the event is not limited and could be a public workshop, a lecture, or a roundtable discussion. While in residence the artist is expected to regularly maintain the studio.
To apply: Please submit 10-25 jpegs, resume, and an artist statement to firstname.lastname@example.org.
