We are excited to launch the Caboose Artist Studio Residency program this summer! The Caboose Artist Studio Residency program provides local artists a place to create without the burden of high rent for a dedicated work space (the program is free to the artist). The Studio will be available to local artists to apply for residency during the warm weather months. Local artist Sierra McKee from the Young Bloods Collective is our first artist to be in the studio residency June – September. She will use the caboose as a studio to create her drawings. Typically, this will be an open-studio concept so visitors can go inside to see the artist creating (of course given the current pandemic, the studio will be closed to the public until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted). Sierra will have an exhibit in the Depot Art Center in August to display work she has worked on throughout the summer.
The Artist-in-Residence program for Fall 2020 is currently accepting applications from artists located in Northwest Colorado.
