College Station Artist In Residence

The Arts Council hosts an Artist in Residence program in College Station during the summer months. This program allows the artist to spend the summer working on projects, adding to their portfolio, and preparing for a solo exhibit at the Arts & Visitor Center Gallery. This program is open to current students pursuing an arts degree at a 2 or 4 year college (Blinn College included), or to people who have graduated within the last year. Housing is thanks to Twin City Properties.

Summer 2021 Call for entries is now closed. Thank you to everyone who applied!
