The Overlook Residency now accepting Applications for Spring/Summer 2017

Open call through Saturday, April 1, 2017
The Overlook residency is now accepting applications for Spring and Summer residencies!
What is The Overlook?
The Overlook is a studio residency that supports emerging artists with a platform to further their practice and expand their audience by providing access to a studio space and collaborative programming. We are interested in artists across diverse mediums and specifically interested in women artists, queer artists, and artists of color, to offer opportunities that often aren't there to these overlooked communities in the arts. The studio is located in Logan Square.
Our Mission
The Overlook is a concept.
The Overlook is opportunity.
The Overlook is engagement.
The Overlook provides emerging women artists, queer artists, and artists of color a platform to further their practice and audience through an artist residency program, exhibitions, and special projects.
The Overlook residencies are targeted toward self-motivated emerging artists across diverse artistic practices. Artists must be able to work both independently and collectively with collaboration being at the core of The Overlook’s mission. Multidisciplinary artists that are socially engaged and take risks are encouraged to apply as individual artists or as collaborative groups. The nature of this residency is to expose emerging artists to a studio practice and provide the opportunity for engagement with a broader audience.  Because each resident is expected to produce an end of residency exhibition, projects that are mid-to-end production tend to work best due to the time constraint, yet we are welcoming to new and exciting project proposals.
We support projects that are:
-Socially engaged
-Activist/Awareness based
To apply for consideration, please send:
-project proposal
-paragraph about your current practice
-your current cv, bio, and work samples
-month or months you are interested in participating
