Artist in Residence


Artists in Residence




Lillstreet’s resident artist program provides a unique opportunity for artists to work in a collaborative, community based arts center offering resources and instruction in a variety of media. Artists-in-Residence are encouraged to develop their existing bodies of work, explore new processes and concepts, and seek instruction in entirely new media and techniques. The residency works with minimal structure, allowing artists to shape their time at Lillstreet to their own goals. Residents spend some of their time dedicated to working with students in order to enrich the education programs, offering students the opportunity to see and learn from working artists. Residents will also work with our community outreach program, ArtReach at Lillstreet, to provide arts education to under served communities in Chicago. We hope that all residents will actively participate in our community, sharing knowledge, prompting new ideas, and building on our enthusiasm for creative expression.
