Our vision is to imbue Zócalo Apartments with “a sense of place” by creating an environment where art is part of the everyday life of the community. We also strive to create a successful model of an artist-in-residence program for the multi-family industry. ZAIR’s mission is to offer a unique and valuable opportunity for emerging and established visual artists to advance their artistic careers while participating in the cultivation of a vibrant and engaging community for Zócalo residents and the greater Spring Branch community. Starting January 2020, a single one-year and two six-month residencies will be available each annual cycle. Artists chosen by an expert panel of local curators and a public vote will be granted no-cost housing with paid utilities, exhibition space, a $250 monthly materials stipend, and the freedom to create and display site-specific installations designed to engage Zócalo’s residents and the greater Spring Branch public community.
Zócalo’s inaugural Artist-in-Residence program is offering three residencies on the beautiful, newly renovated, ten-acre campus of Zócalo Apartments located at 8787 Hammerly Blvd. in the emerging Spring Branch area of Houston, Texas.
