Wave Pool


The Wave Pool ?Art Space Is Your Space? Residency Program awards sponsored residencies to local, national, and international artists interested in engaging Cincinnati, Ohio with their artistic practice. Residencies of 2-6 weeks include flexible live/work studio space, a month long exhibition in our gallery (when appropriate), opportunities for artistic community engagement and programming, and travel/living stipends when available. Residents become part of the dynamic artistic community of Cincinnati, Ohio and are asked to engage the community in at least one public workshop, program, or performance during their stay. Projects are to be artist developed and in line with their work. The program emphasizes two-way engagement, offering exceptional arts experiences to Wave Pool&rsquos local community as well as unique benefits and exhibition opportunities to the artists in residence.

Artists have access to all of Wave Pool?s spaces during their residency which include a studio space, wood shop, large performance/dance/programming space, and their living area.
