The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program awards rent-free studio space to 17 visual artists for yearlong residencies. The program is in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, home to art galleries, independent restaurants and shops, and creative professionals. Studios are near public parks, the city waterfront, and many forms of transit.

Artist studios are accessible 24/7, include freight and passenger elevator access, and high ceilings.

The 2023–2024 Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program residency period will last from September 2023 through August 2024, with an open studios weekend planned for the spring of 2024.

The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program has provided working studio space and community for artists since 1991. Artists are selected annually based on merit from a competitive pool of applicants by a professional jury comprised of artists and members of the Artists Advisory Committee.

Deadline is Tuesday, January 31, 11:59pm (EST).
