Single Parent Residency
Brooklyn Artists Gym recognizes that being an artist is tough in this city, but being a single-parent artist is even tougher. So through The BAG Fund, artists who are bringing up children solo can apply for scholarships for Open Studio memberships, which offer access to 4000 square feet of atelier-style space, drying racks for paintings, lockers, critiques, participation in group shows and all sorts of other amenities to make the making of art a bit easier.
Interested artists or friends of artists should go to the Brooklyn Artists Gym website (www.brooklynartistsgym.com) or call 718-858-9069 to make an appointment to visit. The deadline for applications is May 1st, and the membership starts June 1st, 2012. The memberships last 6 months. BAG has only two positions available for this round.
