The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is a nonprofit arts organization founded to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft.
To that end, HCCC is inviting applications for its Artist Residency Program. The program supports emerging, mid-career, and established artists working in clay, fiber, glass, metal, wood, and mixed media. Through the residency, museum visitors have the unique opportunity to visit the artists’ studios and watch the artists at work; in turn, artists receive a unique opportunity to gain exposure, make connections with the community in Houston, and help educate the public about craft. Up to ten residencies — which include a 200-square-foot studio, a $1,000 monthly stipend and a small, quarterly housing/materials allowance — will be awarded. (Studios are equipped with sinks, telephones, and wireless Internet access.)
