Studio artist members
Micro-studios at The Cedars Union provide affordable studio space with accessibility to tools, programs, and workshops. Studios are designed without doors and with low walls in order to encourage collaboration, community, and visibility. Though “micro,” The Cedars Union facilities provide additional shared workspace for all members to use.
Having a personal studio at The Cedars Union is an experience designated for our incubator, or Cohort program. Becoming a Cohort artist at The Cedars Union places you in a year-and-a-half program with 14 other peers, chosen by an outside jury to ensure commitment to artistic practice and diversity in experience, media, and background. Applicants request a studio size and upon acceptance enter an 18 month lease commitment. After completing the 18 month "incubation", artists move out and a new cohort is selected. Many Cohort artists stay on as Community Members.
The Cedars Union is currently on its second Cohort. Cohort 3 will run from January 2022 to June 2023. Applications will open in the summer of 2021 with a deadline in early October.
