#MostWantedArtists an artist residency project

The #MostWantedArtists program provides a platform for diverse voices to be seen and heard. Often financial barriers and lack of support can snuff out artistic vision and talent before it has even a chance of coming to fruition. The resident artist program provides that important network of support, along with experience and expertise to help the artist reach the next level. From there they are able to begin to secure other funding and support based off the relationships they have built and the past successes.

The program started in 2014 and active in over 24 artists lives with the support of The Bloomfield-Garfield Corporation. We assist with grant writing, advertising, insurance, art management, and other support services.  We have helped secure more than $75,000 in foundation support for Artists and their projects.
