RedLine engages approximately 15–20 artists at any given time who remain “in residence” for a two year period. In exchange for a small stipend artists receive studio space and mentoring from three to four accomplished artists per year. Interactivity is a core element at RedLine: artists engage in healthy art criticism and vibrant debate as they grow together as artists and in the community. RedLine engages artists to participate in various educational forums which allow them to learn new techniques and to hone their existing skills. The Artists-in-Residence Program is based upon an equitable selection process. Artists working in all mediums are welcome to apply including writers, filmmakers, performance artists, photographers, and visual artists. It is important to note that each artist is responsible for outfitting their studio with the necessary tools to produce their works.
