Grand Central Art Center is a Southern California contemporary art institution with a mission focused on collaborative and mutually beneficial outcomes through creative process. The Grand Central Art Center Artist-in-Residence program provides a dedicated apartment and studio to creative individuals through the invitation of the center’s director/curatorial team. The AIR residencies provide time and space away from one’s normal work environment and community, creating the opportunity for expanded collaboration, exchange, growth, resources, knowledge and discovery.
The GCAC artist-in-residence program is supported by a grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
The current emphasis of the residency program focuses on artists working in Social Practice.
