Artist in Residence

ESMoA offers a full work/live studio and hosts three to four international artists a year. Artist in Residence (AiR) participants live in the space and have the opportunity to collaborate with ESMoA staff and the El Segundo community on innovative artistic projects.

There is no application process. Artists are nominated by the Curator and the ESMoA Advisory Board. ESMoA also partners with two esteemed academic institutions, OTIS College of Art and Design, and The Royal Drawing School in London, who select the AiR from February-April and July-September of each year, respectively. This collaboration continues to support young, emerging artists.
