Artist in Residence Program
Art Produce residencies incorporate community engagement and include visual and performing arts and event/temporal based work.
Art Produce launched our Artist-in-Residence Program in August 2016 with the San Antonio based installation and performance artist, Patty Ortiz. Patty Ortiz is renowned for her conceptual and human interaction/social practice projects. Her community engaged installation, “Work Won’t Kill You” investigates, documents and demonstrates the interconnection between work, art and the community of North Park, and reflects the intersecting concerns of buyers, sellers, workers and bystanders.
We are proud to announce our 2017 Artist-in-Residence, Michele Montjoy in a project funded in part by the California Arts Council's Artists Activating Communities grant. This is the inaugural grant cycle of this new CAC program, and a perfect fit for the Art Produce mission to build community and foster civic engagement through arts, education and public culture. Michele will create a large scale installation using fabrics and everyday materials with participation from the neighborhood and the traditional weavers from the local Burmese refugee community.
