The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) focuses on emerging and early career contemporary artists.

We seek artists who want to produce, explore, test new concepts, and expand the current debates and ideas in contemporary art and culture. The CAC accepts artists for
residencies who offer quality in their art and encourages diversity of style, medium (2-D, 3-D, 4-D) and concepts.

The residency program offers artists the time and support to create new work and fosters an environment that encourages creativity, dialog, and experimentation.
