The Art Center seeks to award yearlong residencies to eight Radicle Studio artists (two cohorts of four artists) for residencies to take place in 2024 and 2025. The radicle is the first part of a seedling to burst forth from a seed, rooting itself deeply into the earth. The goal of these residencies is to be rooted for a year at the Art Center through free sunlit studio space for artists to make work and research new projects, gain access to the Art Center’s broad international network of professionals and resources, and connect with a dynamic public.  The residency cycle begins on January 15 and concludes on December 15 each year.


  • Artist must live in Chicago or neighboring suburbs
  • Artists may not be enrolled in a degree-granting program during the residency period
  • Applicants must be at least 21 years old
