Liquitex Research Residency Program

Liquitex has partnered with Minnesota Street Project to provide four Bay Area artists fully funded residencies at 1240 Minnesota Street. Developed to support the creation, presentation and dissemination of contemporary painting practices, the residency aims to support emerging artists by providing work space, materials, resources, and engagement within the studio program at Minnesota Street Project.

This announcement coincides with Liquitex’s launch of their Cadium — Free Acrylic paints. These colors are the world’s first non-cadmium acrylic paint with the same brightness, color strength and opacity as cadmium paint, offering artists a safer option in their practice. Since their foundation in 1955 Liquitex has partnered with artists to ensure that they continually evolve and innovate. Liquitex is proud to be the first in the market to introduce a parity performance Cadmium — Free alternative for health and safety conscious artists.

Selected from a shortlist of emerging artists, Minnesota Street Project is honored to welcome:

Micah Wood 
Erik Parra 
Woody De Othello

Please note: The Liquitex Research Residency Program is annually awarded to a group of artists selected by a committee including figures from both the Project + Liquitex. The Residency does not currently accept unsolicited applications.
