YOTA: Artists in Residence

In the Year of the Artist, we’ve hired 11 Artists in Residence to work alongside city departments, commissions, committees, or collaborative efforts. After a period of inquiry, artists will develop a project or projects that will advance the work of the organization, engage the community in their work, and grow the artist professionally. This work is funded through the City of Roanoke and the National Endowment for the Arts.
