Artists in Residence

Recent Artists in Residence

Through the Fairmount Cultural Corridor, DS4SI supported 5 Artists in Residence who spent 15 months designing opportunities for residents, merchants, youth, and other creative practitioners to re-imagine public spaces, public forms of community expression, and social interventions that increased vibrancy and community connectedness. They forged novel and innovative relationships and practices with community members through art in public spaces.

Artists in Residence were based in distinct communities on and along the Fairmount Line in Boston, including Upham’s Corner, Dudley Street, Four Corners, and local schools, while our Artist in Transit worked at bus stops, buses and the on commuter line itself. They were hosted by local organizations and initiatives, including: Dudley Street Neighborhood Initiative (DSNI), Boston Promise Initiative lead by DSNI, Upham’s Corner Main Streets, Familia Grocery II, Dorchester Arts Collaborative, Four Corners Main Streets, Greater Four Corners Action Coalition, and the Jeremiah Burke High School.

Here they are some exciting examples of their work:

Other Artist in Residence Programs at the Studio

Our Artists in Residence program was inspired in part by our work collaborating on Department of Public Imagination, with Community Labor United.

DPI was also inspired by the Studio's original artist in residence, Judith Leemann, who partnered with us on The Grill Project and Big Urban Games and who continues to inspire the Studio.
