18th Street Arts Center
18th Street Arts Center is the largest, continuously running artist residency program in Southern California. 18th Street encourages contemporary artists from around the globe to create new work within a supportive environment. We provide artists the space and time to take risks in ways that further the development of their practice. Our mission is to provoke public dialogue through contemporary art-making. We believe that the creative process is just as important as the outcome.
