COLLIDER artist-in-residence program

COLLIDER, the South Central Regional Library’s artist-in-residence program, connects the public with art and the people who create it. Special studio space within the Library allows artists to create on-site. Patrons are encouraged to drop in, interact, and learn about different artistic processes, and participate in special workshops for the public.

We are currently accepting applications for artists for the January to June 2020 period.

Generous funding from Councilwoman Madonna Flood makes the COLLIDER Artist-In-Residence program possible.
