A nine-month residency at The Umbrella Community Arts Center in Concord, MA. Free studio and housing provided.
The Umbrella Community Arts Center in Concord, MA is proud to continue its Artist-in-Residence program for 2017-2018. The program provides space and support for an emerging artist to develop their work while connecting to the Greater Boston art community.
This year, The Umbrella begins a long-awaited renovation that will bring welcome state-of-the-art changes for all to enjoy. Using an artistic approach, the selected 2017-2018 Artist-in-Residence should consider The Umbrella’s transformations as a point of departure for their own creativity during their nine month residency.
The Umbrella Community Arts Center occupies the former Emerson School building. Originally built in 1929, the building has long been an important historic and architectural landmark in downtown Concord. In the early 1980’s, a group of Concord volunteers and visionaries realized that the aging Emerson School building, slated for demolition, could be saved and converted into a community arts center. Since 1983, The Umbrella has supported a vibrant creative community by providing studio space, art education, community events, and theatrical performances.
• Free studio space of approximately 132 square feet for nine months.
• Free housing in a one bedroom cottage adjacent to The Umbrella for nine months.
• Participation in Winter Market on , 2, and 3, 2017 and Open Studios on April and 8, 2018.
