The City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department is launching an Artist-in-Residence (AIR) pilot program this year that will begin in August, and run through October.

One SC visual artist will be selected to serve as the city’s Artist-in-Residence and can freely work and share their art in the AIR studio within the Park Circle Community Building. Pro tip: In the selection process, preference will be shown to Lowcountry artists. They will receive a $2,000 stipend.

The AIR will also serve as a visual art ambassador, offer public open studio hours, and engage in at least two community activities.

To qualify, artists must be 25 or older and may work in any medium that will work safely in the studio.

There is no fee to apply, and the deadline is Friday, July 12. In addition, artists will be asked to upload five quality images + a current CV.
