ArtBuilt, in partnership with NYC Parks, Queens Museum, Staten Island Arts, Staten Island Urban Center, Canvas/Island Voice, YOUTHBuild Staten Island/JMT Media, Gowanus Canal Conservancy, Friends of Thomas Greene Park, Textile Arts Center, Arts Gowanus, and NOCD-NY is now accepting proposals for: Studio in the Park for summer and fall 2019.

Studio in the Park is a residency program operated since 2015 by Queens Museum, ArtBuilt and NYC Parks, providing an artist or artist collective use of a 150 square foot mobile studio space, situated in an NYC public park, to carry out a community-engaged art project over the course of 6 weeks. In 2019, project sites will be: Thomas Greene Park in Gowanus, Brooklyn; and Stapleton Waterfront Park in Stapleton, Staten Island.

The ArtBuilt Studio in the Park residency began in 2015 in partnership with the Queens Museum. With the receipt of a prestigious OUR TOWN grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), we will expand this residency to all five boroughs in 2018 and 2019.

Artist/s for Studio in the Park residencies will be selected through an open call application process.

Application deadline: Monday, April 8, 2019
Announcement of selected proposals: Early May 2019
Artist information session: Friday, March 29, 6–8pm
Textile Arts Center (505 Carroll St, Brooklyn NY, 11215)
To RSVP, please email Emily Ahn Levy at [email protected]. The information session will be live streamed and archived on Artbuilt's Facebook page.

Artists are welcome to propose projects that align with their existing practice, and also demonstrate alignment with the issue designated by the project partners. Please click here for full description of the open call, including commitments and eligibility.

The Studio in the Park residency is a publicly-engaged arts residency that is rooted in place, in the park, and in the local community. This residency is best suited for a project that has gone through a previous iteration in the local community, and/or demonstrates clear ideas and actions to interface with the public. If this is a brand new project, the resident will need to describe in detail in their proposal how they will work directly with the surrounding communities and cultivate local partnerships.

The resident will be provided:
A mobile studio space for 6 weeks situated within the artist’s assigned park. The light-filled mobile studio offers electricity, air conditioning, wi-fi (site dependent), and ample wall space.

A total stipend of 3000 USD inclusive of art materials.

Support from ArtBuilt, Queens Museum, NYC Parks, and community partners for public engagement, event production and promotion.
