Following Redline from it’s very beginning I’ve always and viewed and used the open artist’s open studios as a community resource. Kudos to Geoffrey Shamos and Louise Martorano for getting this grant offering even more support to artists in residence!

RedLine Denver’s Artist-in-Residence Program Awarded $100,000 from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts

RedLine is thrilled to announce the award of a two-year $100,000 grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts to support RedLine’s Artist in Residence program. Thanks to the generous support from the Foundation, RedLine is able to offer fully subsidized studio space for career–oriented for the first time in RedLine’s history (founded in 2008). The grant is effective for all artists who will be accepted into the program as of September 1, 2014 as well as the current, or second year, artists at RedLine. This grant signals a new era in RedLine’s Artist in Residence program in that it will set the stage and expectation for artists to receive free studio space in the future:

This has been a goal I have had for the Artist in Residence program since I arrived in 2010. The support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts positions RedLine as a leading voice in Denver that speaks and acts on the importance of providing support and resources for artists, and therefore Denver’s cultural vibrancy.
Louise Martorano, Executive Director
