Veterans Residency Program
Veterans Artist Residency Program
Kala Veterans Artist Residency Program provides artist residencies to local, national, and international Veteran artists. Veteran artists producing innovative work in mediums including printmaking, digital media, installation art, social practice, photography, and book arts are encouraged to apply. In 2023 one of the six 2023-2024 Fellowship and Special Program Awards was designated for a veteran artist (one who has served in the U.S. armed forces).
Please note we have proposals pending to fund a more extensive Veterans Artist Residency Program. Past programs are listed below.
2023-2024 Fellowship and Special Program Award designated for a veteran artist includes:
Cash Award: $3,000
Studio Residency: Up to 9 months of studio residency with 24/7 access to our communal studio spaces.
Kala Class: One class that will provide training in a chosen area of printmaking and/or digital media.
Community: Access to a community and network of approximately 75 artists working at Kala, participation in Kala events, and support of Kala staff.
