Partnerships + Features
Viscera was created in downtown Oakland to be an inspiring space for discovering new, artisan products as well as nurturing culture and community.
We are an Oakland Art Murmur affiliated retailer hosting 7-10 artist shows per year with a focus on working with emerging and underrepresented artists. We are thrilled to announce that we will be offering Micro-Residencies as a new program!
Each Micro-Residency will pay the artist $250 and will include a small space in our shop for working and interacting with the community for 4-6 weeks. We will also organize a show for the artist to showcase and sell their work in the shop as well as online.
Through this program, we hope to give the community of Oakland opportunities not only to experience new art but also to see and participate in the process of art-making.
Please apply by sending an email describing you, your work, and your idea for the Micro-Residency to Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will evaluate applications on a rolling basis and hope to host our first artist early in 2020!
