Professional artist studios in BRAC's recently renovated building are now available for up to two year residencies, on a year to year basis, for artists working in various visual art disciplines including: painting, photography, sculpture, video, installation and new media.  Selected artist will have the opportunity to produce new work and make use of BRAC’s extensive resources in support of their creative practices.

BRAC’s non-living studios are accessible Monday to Friday, 10am to 10pm, and on weekends from 10am to 6pm. Each open plan studio has a window or windows, vary in size from 250 to 400 sq ft. and range in price from $425 -$650.

Artists will be selected based on their portfolio of work, statement of intent, and an expressed interest to work within the Bronx community. Applicants will be reviewed by a diverse independent selection panel composed of artists, curators, and arts professionals. The program is seeking artists with a developed studio practice, and who are not enrolled in a college or university degree-granting program. BRAC does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, or sexual orientation.
