With several Percent for Art opportunities on the horizon, Philadelphia's Public Art Program invites artists* to submit an application with the Public Art Artist Registry. The registry allows artists to participate in all selection processes by maintaining a record of their work that will be consulted by Public Art staff, panelists, architects, and City agencies as public art opportunities become available. The registry is open to all professional artists. There are no residency requirements for the registry, although some opportunities will be limited to the greater Philadelphia region. Click here to learn more and how to apply. *Artists who have already submitted to the registry need not reapply unless you need to update your images.



The Location One International Residency Program's unique structure allows emerging and mid-career artists to interact and converse with more established artists who are at the top of their career. This sort of discourse is at the heart of Location One's philosophy of experimentation and collaboration. Artists are usually selected by our partner foundations and arts organizations who directly sponsor artists from their home countries. When logistically and financially possible, American artists are invited to participate and are proposed by Location One's curatorial team. Entry Fee: N/A MORE»
