The LINE Residency is an artist-in-residence program produced by Big Medium in partnership with the LINE Austin. Artists selected for the residency program will have access to a private studio space within the LINE Austin, located in the heart of downtown Austin overlooking Lady Bird Lake. In a city where art spaces are disappearing, Big Medium sees this as an innovative way to address a critical issue with a partner that is similarly committed to nurturing the art community. The residency program is a six week opportunity for local artists to experiment and create in a new environment. The open call for the 2019 LINE Residency is from May 1 to May 31, 2019. Three artists will be selected from the applications for the July, September, and November residency positions.
