Started in 2017, residential Halcyon Arts Lab fellowships provide support and resources to emerging artists working on projects addressing issues of social justice, civic engagement, and community building. The residencies include rent-free housing, studio space, a stipend, skill building programming, exhibition opportunities, and access to a network of collectors, curators, and other experts.
Although the Arts Lab fellowship is paused at this time, Halcyon continues to serve our artist fellow alumni and other DC-based artists. Meet all the Arts Lab fellows here.
