40th Street Artist-in-Residence Program
The 40th Street Artist-in-Residence Program, also known as the "40th Street AIR", awards West Philadelphia artists 1 year of free studio space at 40th & Chestnut Streets. In exchange, residents share their talents within West Philadelphia by leading workshops, teaching classes, exhibiting, etc. Founded by artist Edward M. Epstein in 2003 and managed by Gina Renzi since 2008, we address the need for studio space in West Philadelphia, assist artists with career development, and make the 40th Street area a nexus for visual arts.
