Visit the new residents of 40th ST AIR in their studios this October!
The 40th Street Artist-in-Residence Program awards West Philadelphia artists one year of free studio space at 40th & Chestnut Sts. In exchange, residents share their talents within West Philadelphia by leading workshops, teaching classes, exhibiting, etc. Founded by artist Edward M. Epstein in 2003 and managed by Gina Renzi since 2008, we address the need for studio space in West Philadelphia, assist artists with career development, and make the 40th Street area a nexus for visual arts.
Residents include Inga Kimberly Brown, Candy Alexandra Gonzalez, Katie Kaplan, Patricia Renee Thomas, Keisha Whatley and Wit Lopez.
