About the Residency

UP and The Museum of Human Achievement foster a welcoming and intentional community of artists and arts administrators, as well as a number of useful tools and facilities at our resident artists' disposal. Our building is equipped with a dark room, co-working space, 1000 sq ft gallery space, venue area with PA, vinyl record cutting lathe, VR headset, tool library and various audio/visual equipment. Both the gallery and the venue host monthly exhibitions, weekly performance events and occasional educational programming; artists in residence are encouraged to participate in the development of our programming activities. MoHA is located in a thriving neighborhood near multiple local restaurants, work-focused coffee shops and businesses, as well as a multitude of neighboring art/creative spaces, including Canopy, Big Medium, Tillery Park, and Bolm Studios. We welcome every medium imaginable and individuals whose work is outside the box. Residents will live on-site in a climate controlled renovated 1970s trailer with a private yard.

Accommodations
Resident artists are provided with a newly built 16' x 12' studio with two large barn doors which open into the common area and provide natural light. In additional artists are free to use all facilities, tools and supplies at hand. There is a small kitchen, internet, bathroom and shower. Although the trailer is climate controlled the studio is not.
