The Regional Residency is a public program of Verge Center for the Arts. Verge is a strong supporter of the regional arts community. The Verge Regional Residency Program (VRRP) is intended to extend Verge’s investment in the Sacramento community, establishing a conduit between the regional art community and the broader art world.
Verge offers the greater Sacramento area’s best contemporary visual arts programming. We strive to challenge the greater Sacramento area to develop a deeper appreciation of the visual arts by offering diverse, broad-based, public programming such as the VRRP in order to develop and promote regional artists.
As a proud Sacramento institution, we love giving back to this city and supporting others in their success. The VRRP offers such support by providing artists with the opportunity to participate in community and dedicate themselves to their passion.
The purpose of the Verge Regional Residency Program is to give meaningful support to artists and creatives. Our residency program provides visual artists financial support along with time and space to concentrate on their work. This program aims to nurture local artists from a diverse range of backgrounds and uplift their work. We welcome all visual artists working with a wide range of mediums.
The three-month Verge Residency is open to artists living locally (within a 35-mile radius of Sacramento)
