“Watching the processes of my studio mates and the ways their ideas take physical form offered me new eyes on my own practice. The space provided allowed me experiment with new ways of monitoring my own idea formation.” – Workspace 2014-2015 artist-in-residence, Shani Peters
Workspace is a nine-month studio residency program for emerging artists working across all disciplines. The program offers 25-30 artists more than just free, dedicated studio space to create and develop their work and practice. It also provides artists a chance to engage with peers and arts professionals, present their work to the public, and participate in career-advancement opportunities.

Over the years, I have been fortunate to see first-hand the many collaborations and friendships developed among peers, and see the exceptional achievements of artists who have participated in the program.
For an idea of what the Workspace experience is like, I encourage you to read a recent article in The New York Times about the program including a brief interview with our alumni artist, Sanford Biggers. His story is just one of the many I have heard from artists about what Workspace has done for them during a critical stage of their career.
Next month, we will be holding information sessions for Workspace, where artists will have the opportunity to hear more about the program from LMCC staff and ask questions about what makes a competitive application.
