Emerging Artist Exhibition Program

The Regis Center for Art (RCA) Emerging Artist Exhibition Program is a new opportunity for emerging artists in Minnesota to participate in solo or group exhibitions at the Quarter Gallery in the Regis Center for Art at the University of Minnesota. The purpose of the exhibition series is to provide artists with opportunities to exhibit their work, broaden connections with other artists, and gain wider exposure to the arts community in the Twin Cities. The exhibition series seeks to support a diverse range of artistic practices within the visual arts. Participants will be selected by a panel comprised of University of Minnesota Department of Art faculty along with a member of the broader arts community.

Applications Now Closed for Spring 2019.
Exhibition dates: October 10-26, 2019

Diversity of Backgrounds and Experiences Artists in Residence  


The Diverse Artists’ Residency Program offers studio space to artists within a vibrant university art research environment that is committed to cultural transformation. This one-year residency presents an opportunity for artists to focus on their creative work and interact with the Department of Art community. The goal of this program is to create an open space for artists of diverse backgrounds to access the department’s facilities, exchange thoughts and ideas, share their perspectives, and to expand the inclusiveness of this community. It is envisioned as an expansive space that connects artists and their communities with the Department of Art. The program provides a unique opportunity for artists to challenge themselves and build relationships through dialogue and collaboration with other artists, while engaging with and informing the culture and educational life of the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota.

Benefits of the residency include 24-hour access to a studio space in the Regis Center for Art on the University of Minnesota’s campus, a $6,700.00 stipend, and an exhibition in the Regis Center for Art’s Quarter Gallery. Applicants are required to give two public artist lectures, one during each semester of one academic year.
