Independent Residencies

Along with the Cook County local artist project space outlined in the above Call for Artists, the Art Colony invites independent artists-in-residence to contact them regarding scheduling studio time.


Studio 21 offers two dorm rooms with shared bathroom/shower and kitchen space.

Grant Funded Residencies

For those applying for a grant that requires a commitment from an organization in advance, note that the Art Colony selects a small number of artists to partner with in this way and advanced consent is required. Additional fees will apply for administration and marketing.
