OLiVE DTLA wants to keep art alive in DTLA. We have been searching for the most inspiring artist to become our first-ever Artist-in-Residence. From 185 submissions, our panel of experts have selected four finalists, each of whom will produce one piece of work specific to DTLA art culture and exhibit it along with his/her selected portfolio at OLiVE DTLA’s art show on June 22.

The winning artist will receive a 6 month residency that includes a rent-free loft apartment to be used as a residence, art studio, pied-a-terre, or pop-up space. Additionally, the winning artist will receive a monthly allowance for art supplies and create artwork to display at OLiVE DTLA for our inspired community to enjoy.
