Mission Street Arts exists to further the artistic vision of resident artists and the community by providing studio space in a scenic and supportive environment. MSA welcomes artists working in diverse fields including stone-carving, sculpture, painting, drawing, performance, printmaking, textile arts, and writing, and encourages community involvement through workshops, studio visits, and exhibits. Residencies are available for 1 to 8 weeks, tailored to the artist. The residence includes a private bedroom, shared bathrooms, kitchen, library and living room in addition to studio space and access to various tools and equipment. There is no fee to apply or be in residence. Artists are responsible for travel and food while in residence.
