Halcyon Introduces 12 DC-Based Artists Selected for Pilot Studios Program at Historic Fillmore School in Georgetown
S&R Foundation today announced the 12 DC Artists selected for the pilot Studios Program at The Fillmore School. S&R is a Washington, DC-based non-profit that supports gifted individuals in the arts, sciences and social entrepreneurship.
While recently expounding on how foundations can assist artists in rapidly gentrifying cities, we called attention to one obvious strategy, employed by the S&R Foundation in the Washington, D.C. region: buy a building and make it available to artists.
Recognizing the District’s need for studio space for artists, the S&R Foundation is offering local artists six months of free space in the Fillmore School in Georgetown.
In the tony Georgetown neighborhood, local artists have a unique opportunity to apply for half a year of studio space — rent free.
