Brickscape Artist Residency & Exhibition

Brickscape is a six week residency culminating in an exhibition that will open to the public during Charleston’s annual arts & culture festival, FestivALL. Four national artists and six West Virginia artists will be selected. Selected artists will receive a $500 material stipend and artists from out of town will be provided housing. Artists will have 24 hour access to a previously unoccupied historical space in downtown Charleston where they will create a work of temporary, site-specific installation art. Each artist will have a designated area in the space in which to create an installation that responds to the history and culture of the location and its surrounding community. The deadline to apply is February 2nd. The residency will take place from April 15th to May 26th. The exhibition will be open from May 25th to June 23rd. Artists working in all mediums are encouraged to apply. For questions, concerns, and full submission guidelines please visit
