Want to be a Gibbes Museum visiting artist?

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday, May 31, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.

Past Visiting Artist Tim Hussey paints on unstretched canvas during his residency, Spring 2019.

Complementing our exhibition program, the Visiting Artist series promotes creativity, introduces new art forms, provides perspective on larger community issues, encourages freedom of thought, and connects with the broadest possible audience.

The program features eight contemporary artists annually, whose work contributes to a new understanding of art in the South.

Invitations are extended to emerging and nationally recognized artists whose work aligns with the museum’s Collection Profile; whose work is in the Collection; or who have been identified as a finalist or winner of the 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art.

Artists who currently reside in South Carolina can apply for a 4-6 week Visiting Artist session with a proposal introducing their current studio practice, artwork content, and type of project they would like to accomplish through a residency at the Gibbes Museum of Art.
