Cubberley opens to MV artists

The Cubberley Artist Studios Program is opening its doors to artists from Mountain View as well as the rest of the Bay Area.

The program, previously limited to artists living in Palo Alto, is accepting applications through July 1 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 October.

The announcement comes at a time Cubberley and Palo Alto city officials have begun developing a Cultural Cafe as well as events like arts panels, workshops, lectures and film screenings, according to the program's press release. Officials say they 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," said Rhyena Halpern, the community services department assistant director.

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

Application information is available here on the Cubberley Artist Studio Program page on the city of Palo Alto website.
