About the Program

The Studio Artist Program supports a diverse range of disciplines including ceramics, film & video, installation, painting, performance, photography, and sculpture. Atlanta Contemporary offers artists private workspace as well as opportunities for dialogue about contemporary art through free public programs, a professional resource in independent curators, and an ever-growing community amongst current and prior participants in the program.


About The Studios

Studios range in size from 225 to 755 square feet; each space is unique. Rental rates, which include utilities, parking, and Wi-Fi, are subsidized at 30% market value approximated based on the square footage of each studio. Studio entrances are located within a secure courtyard next to a parking lot reserved for program participants.

Leases are annual with the option to renew no more than 2 times. Atlanta Contemporary reserves the right to deny renewal request.
