New attractive artist Residency in the historic city of San Miguel de Allende in Mexico
The San Miguel Art Residency is an effort to create bridges between the San Miguel arts community and artists from around the World, as well as to continue the legacy of cultural exchange which is the essence of this very special place.
The Residency is located in downtown San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico
Total cost of the residency: $2,500 U.S. dollars
Our mission is to provide a space for the research, production and exhibition of works tied to the local arts community of San Miguel de Allende. While in residence, the artists will benefit from a vast cultural exchange in a stimulating environment while employing their time on creating new work and/or delving deeper into a subject of their choosing while exchanging ideas with their colleagues.
The San Miguel Art Residency was created by Sabina Arias, a musician and visual artist from San Miguel de Allende. Her family has been an integral part of the community for many decades, and is active in supporting the local arts community. Before receiving a double degree in Art and Jazz Studies from The California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles, Sabina realized how influential her upbringing in San Miguel was not only to her own creative process, but how inspirational this city has been and continues to be for many artists from all backgrounds.
