Arts + Public Life, an initiative of UChicago Arts, provides platforms for artists and access to arts programming through artist residencies, arts education, cultural entrepreneurship, and arts-led programs and events. Arts + Public Life advances and promotes a robust, collaborative, and evolving relationship between the University of Chicago and the South Side’s vibrant civic, cultural, and artistic communities.
Announcing the 2018-2019 Artists-in-Residence
Join us in welcoming the newest Arts +Public Life and the Center for the Study of Race Politics and Culture Artists-in-Residence, Jarvis Boyland, Brandon Breaux, and Amina Ross.
The ten-month Artist-in-Residence program for individual artists places specific emphasis on those whose work critically engages issues of race and ethnicity and works to advance their artistic ambitions and opportunities. During this program, resident artists have access to rehearsal, performance, and exhibition space at the Arts Incubator and Green Line Performing Arts Center in Washington Park, as well as access to the academic and research resources of the University.
