A panel of jurors composed of arts professionals and artists evaluate applications and work samples. ArtCenter Juried Artist status and all its benefits are valid for a term of three years from the date of the jury selection. Juried terms are renewable once, for a total of six years. Those artists who wish to be considered for senior resident status may do so after completing their six-year residency. If selected as a Senior Resident, those artists will be eligible for one to three more years.
Artists who have ArtCenter studios are required to be present in their studios a minimum of 30 hours a week and need to be present during exhibition openings or other events. All ArtCenter Juried Artists are required to volunteer 10 hours a month within any of the ArtCenter’s programs.
