Howard County Center for the Arts Announces Available Studio Space
The Howard County Arts Council is seeking applications from non-profit arts organizations to fill one available resident arts organization studio space. The available studio/office space is approximately 750 square feet and rents for $522.50 per month. The deadline to apply is 5:00 PM Tuesday, August 5, 2014.
HCAC houses accessible studio space for fourteen resident artists, as well as three resident arts organizations representing a variety of disciplines. Residents have 24-hour access, a physical mailing address and mailbox at HCCA, natural light, and easy access to water. Heat & utilities are included. Residents also receive a reduced rate and priority consideration for renting other spaces in the Center, including the dance studio, black box theatre, conference room, and classrooms.
HCAC resident artists are required to open their studios for up to four 'open studio' events per year, maintain membership in the Howard County Arts Council, use their studio an average of twenty hours per week, have a working office phone, and carry liability insurance as outlined in their lease. Initial leases are for a one-year period; upon successful completion of a studio review, lease renewals are offered in two-year, renewable terms to artists meeting the conditions of their lease.
Applicants must be incorporated and recognized by the IRS as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Applicants will be evaluated based on their artistic discipline, artistic merit, and commitment, as well as the appropriateness of their activities for the available space. In cases where all other elements of candidates' qualifications are deemed of equal value, Howard County organizations or organizations with an established history of serving Howard County residents will be given priority.
The Howard County Center for the Arts is located at 8510 High Ridge Road, Ellicott City, MD 21043.
