Cubberley opens up

The local studios now accepting artists from around Bay Area

The Cubberley Artist Studios Program (CASP) has opened its application process to all artists within the Bay Area.

The program, previously limited to artists living in Palo Alto, is accepting applications through July 1 from artists for a residency at one of 23 city-sponsored studio workplaces at the Cubberley Community Center at 4000 Middlefield Road. Current CASP members are also permitted to re-apply for a residency. Accepted applicants will begin a four-year term in CASP in October.

The announcement comes at a time CASP and Palo Alto city officials have begun developing a Cultural Café as well as more events like arts panels, workshops, lectures and film screenings, according to the program's press release. Officials believe these additions will help enhance the program. "With the visibility and accessibility of the program raised, more members of the Palo Alto community and beyond will get to enjoy the Cubberley studios, meet the artists and attend events," Community Services Department Assistant Director Rhyena Halpern said.

Artists in the program donate one artwork each residency term to the city of Palo Alto's Public Art Program and perform fours hours of service monthly.

Application information is available on the Cubberley Artist Studio Program page.
