The Studios of Key West offers up to 35 juried one-month residencies per year to working artists and writers from around the world. Residencies are awarded to visual artists, writers, composers, performers, and interdisciplinary artists.
The TSKW creative campus includes a newly renovated art deco building with exhibition space, classrooms and 9 studios (utilized by local artists). Nearby, a lush sculpture garden surrounded by 2 cottages and apartments house our visiting Artists in Residence.
Three of the four residency spaces have attached a small live/workspace which is appropriate for non-industrial art making and writing. Residencies are for one month, and begin on the 16th of the month and conclude on the 14th of the following month. (e.g. artists may arrive on April 16 and must depart on May 14).
Resident artists are requested to connect with the Key West community in the form of a class, workshop, reading, performance or special project, to be agreed upon by the artist and The Studios. These are given in exchange for their residency. The acceptance of a program depends on many factors, and program proposals may not be scheduled even if an artist is granted a residency.
Currently, The Studios has a no pet and no overnight guests policy, this includes spouses, partners, children and friends.
Our ongoing programming includes an extensive workshop season, concert and performance schedule, free lectures, exhibitions, innovative arts projects, and cultural advancement ideas.
