Artist in Residence
Since its inception, Self Help Graphics & Art has fostered an artist-in-residence program that has nurtured legacy building artists such as Linda Vallejo, Leo Limon, Michael Amescua, Yreina Cervantez, Jaime “Vyal” Reyes and beyond. Since moving to Boyle Heights in 2010, SHG has provided residencies and small business incubation spaces for artists such as Sticky Rick’s, Dewey Tafoya and Wayne Perry.
Today it includes project-based, short-term, and long-term residencies that include capacity-building resources and experts in the field, from printmakers, curators to program directors, and more. The Artist in Residence program will be segmented out across areas of printmaking, curation (for professionals and youth, ages 16-24), research & documentation, small business incubation, and special projects.
