NO VACANCY is an artist residency program in collaboration with the RiNo Art District and Menalto Development. Our goal is to convert an un-utilized warehouse space in RiNo Art District into temporary studio spaces and a group art installation experience that builds over time based on the contributions of the artists involved. It will be open to the public at various stages in the buildout, and for a week-long celebration coinciding with the Grand Opening of the nearby Art Park. The building and space inside is your canvas - tell us what you would do with a one-month residency! We’re looking for a diverse group of artists from muralists to projectionists, to performance art, sculpture, digital and beyond!
