VISITING ARTISTS



The Gibbes strives to provide access to contemporary art through a vibrant Visiting Artist series.

Complementing our exhibition program, the Visiting Artist series promotes creativity, introduces new art forms, provides perspective on larger community issues, encourages freedom of thought, and connects with the broadest possible audience.

The program features eight artists annually whose work contributes to a new understanding of art in the South. The Gibbes extends invitations to both emerging and nationally recognized artists of all backgrounds and is committed to cultivating an experience that is diverse and affirming.



Program Details

2024 Visiting Artist studio sessions are tentatively scheduled for:

January 22 - March 10 (Session I) April 15 - May 26 (Session II)
September 9 - October 20 (Session III) October 28 - December 8 (Session IV)

Visiting Artists receive a weekly honorarium and one-time materials stipend. Following the residency, artists will have the opportunity to exhibit works in the Ruth and Bill Baker Art Sales Gallery and collaborate on exclusive products to be sold in the Museum Store. There are also opportunities to lead adult workshops and participate in virtual programs.

Future applicants are encouraged to consider the following themes: environmental conservation, social justice, health and wellness and innovation and incorporate one or more in their proposal, introducing their current studio practice, artwork content and type of project they would pursue in-residency.

Applications for the 2024 Visiting Artist Program will be accepted August 1 - September 30, 2023. All submissions will be reviewed by a committee of Gibbes Museum of Art staff members and diverse arts professionals. Entries must be submitted via Slideroom.
