BOLT is one of the artist residencies in Chicago. It is a one-year program that offers “the opportunity to engage the Chicago arts community and its public in critical dialogue about contemporary art.”
It offers a studio in the lower level of the Chicago Artist Coalition’s gallery, one SOLO show during the year and professional support by having studio visits from artists, gallerists, curators, and collectors. I am starting this residency on July 15th. I already got the studio and am moving soon.
I was a HATCH resident, which is another artist-in-residency program that the Chicago Artist Coalition offers. This residency helped my work gain exposure and let me meet wonderful people in the arts. Now that I am starting BOLT I am delighted to be part of a community of talented artists, expand my professional network in the arts and strengthen my presence as an artist in the United States through community dialogue, and access to programming and support.
