We are currently not accepting any new submissions for our artist residency program or special exhibitions. Please stay tuned for our next available application cycle.

Public Process is a quarterly, juried artist residency program that aims to bring contemporary art production, practice and community engagement to the Eugene area. All artists may work in our space for 4-6 weeks, and must allow open studio times to the public, offer a talk on their work, and close the residency with a show.
