Artpace provides artists with unparalleled resources and allows them to take time, take risks, and unveil new ideas. Each residency is composed of one artist from Texas, one from elsewhere in the United States, and one from abroad.

For Texas-based artists, Artpace hosts an online Texas Open Call. The Open Call will begin on June 25, 2014, and will end on August 27, 2014, at 4pm CST. See the       Artpace Texas Open Call 2016 Overview for more information.

The Texas Open Call 2016 application is now live!
