Artists and aspiring professionals are invited to apply for The Bascom’s Residency and Internship Programs. We offer opportunities in a variety of departments and mediums, including ceramics, photography, video, sculpture, community education, marketing, web-marketing in the retail shop, and exhibitions. During your stay on the scenic Bascom campus, you will immerse yourself in a dynamic professional visual arts environment, meet artists and educators, interface with gallery visitors, and above all, hone the skills and talent that you need to succeed!

*Check out The current Resident Artists' blog "Bascom Life" to see what projects they're working on.*
