UP and The Museum of Human Achievement foster a welcoming and intentional community of artists and arts administrators, as well as a number of useful tools and facilities at our resident artists’ disposal. Our building is equipped with a dark room, co-working space, 1000 sq ft gallery space, venue area with PA, vinyl record cutting lathe, VR headset, tool library and various audio/visual equipment. Both the gallery and the venue host monthly exhibitions, weekly performance events and occasional educational programming; artists in residence are encouraged to participate in the development of our programming activities. MoHA is located in a thriving neighborhood near multiple local restaurants, work-focused coffee shops and businesses, as well as a multitude of neighboring art/creative spaces, including Canopy, Big Medium, Tillery Park, and Bolm Studios. We welcome every medium imaginable and individuals whose work is outside the box. Residents will live on-site in a climate controlled renovated 1970s trailer with a private yar.
Applications will be reviewed and notified quarterly; Candidates should apply at least 6 months in advance i.e. if you’re applying between September 1st – December 31st you will be considered for residencies during the months of July 1st – September 30th.
Notifications will go out approximately 2 weeks after the deadline.
The residency program offers opportunities to contribute to MoHA exhibitions and public programs. Artists In Residence are highly encouraged to submit proposals with a final performance/exhibition or talk in mind. We can and will help facilitate any necessary production needs to make it an excellent experience.
Artists-In-Residence are asked to put in volunteer hours toward space renovation and a weekly chore. We are frequently renovating our building – a process that would be impossible without our dedicated network of volunteers. A constantly changing physical and social environment, MoHA is always a work-in-progress, and there are many opportunities to leave one’s mark.
