The residency is awarded to one artist (or artist team) per year to create a temporary public artwork for the BCA’s historic plaza that highlights the BCA as an artistic hub. The program encourages artists to connect to the public not only by way of the completed, temporary artwork, but also throughout the process of developing and realizing their residency project.
