Join us at 18th Street Arts Center for guided studio tours and champagne! Our Champagne Socials happen twice a year and are an afternoon campus-wide open studio. Come for a meet and greet with cheerful libations. Enjoy access to new works in progress and intimate discussions with the artists.

18th Street Arts Center’s residency programs help build and strengthen the creative community by working with local, national and international artists and curators. There are five types of residencies, including local organizations in residence, where arts organizations have their offices and activities on our campus; local artists in residence, where LA-based artist occupy either live/work or day work studios for 1 year or more; a visiting artist program that hosts international and national artists and curators from between 1 to 3 months; a curator in residence, who has studio space for one calendar year to conduct research and foster community engagement through ancillary programs, such as symposia, lectures, and artist talks; and the Artist Lab Residency program, structured as both a residency and an exhibition for an LA-based artist.
