innovative artist residencies & events in underused buildings


Goodyear Arts is a residency and events program based on this truth: Artists need space, time, money, and community.


Goodyear Arts utilizes otherwise empty buildings. Resident artists have private studios, and our gallery space features their work. Artists & visitors can use collaborative work space during open gallery hours.


Residencies last two months, with 24/7 studio access & a continuing alumni shared studio program. Studio & performance space can be requested for short-term use.


Resident artists are paid stipends. Purchases of art support artists & the program. Goodyear Arts is supported by corporate and foundation funding.


Each residency concludes with a free public showcase. Simultaneous residencies provide interaction & critical feedback. Visiting artists build connections.
