The St. Elmo Arts Residency is a joint project of the Department of Art and Art History and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at The University of Texas at Austin that offers one fellowship each academic year to a newly minted MFA artist in painting, drawing, print, photo, sculpture or multimedia.
The residency is situated in a beautifully renovated house and studio compound in the St. Elmo district of South Austin, located midway between the university campus and the Wildflower Center.
The residency includes teaching at both the University of Texas at Austin campus as well as the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. The residency will culminate in a solo-exhibition at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in the restored 19th-century carriage house gallery.
The residency lasts from early-august to the following mid-may. Find more information about the St. Elmo Arts Residency application here.
