About The Studios

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 the staff Curator, and an ever-growing community amongst current and prior participants in the program.

How To Join

Application Process

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.

Emerging, mid-career, and established Atlanta-based artists may apply when space becomes available. Selection criteria include consistency with our institutional focus, level of activity as a working artist, and history of community involvement.

The Studio Artist Program is an independently-driven atmosphere and communal environment. Atlanta Contemporary encourages creative growth and experimentation.
