Interested in a new and exciting studio space with no long term commitment?
Want to be inspired by other creatives in the Rochester Community?
The YARDS Residency is a month long program geared towards collaborative and creative endeavors. This residency is unlike others in that collaboration remains at the heart of the program, whether it be physically making something with another artists, or being inspired by the work of others within the space. The residency hosts 4 to 6 artists at a time in the main gallery space, meanwhile within The YARDS there will be 6 to 7 artists with permanent studios. Residents will have 24-hour access to the space, and the wood shop is available for use by appointment. The program also offers guest lectures, critics, studio and gallery visits within the Rochester area. We highly encourage residents to interact, engage and develop connections within the rich community The YARDS has to offer.
