On View August, 2022

We are excited to announce the second iteration of the Emerging Creators Incubator from May—August, 2022.  

We have invited a group of six multidisciplinary emerging creators between the ages of 18 – 30 to participate in a mentorship and residency program that includes hands-on workshops and studio visits with professional artist mentors including Rydel Cerezo and Kimmortal, and a collaboration workshop from guest artists.

 Our Incubator program will end with a month-long showcase in August to present work at the Art Gallery at Evergreen.
