About the Artist in Residence Program
For the past decade or so, the Town of Fairfax has benefited from the services of Artists’ working as an Artist in Residence. These artists have given of their time and creative energy to the citizens of Fairfax. Moving into 2018, we are changing our Artist in Residence program from one artist and expanding it to be an Artist in Residence Collaborative which will now consist of up to 3 artists working together at a time to boost the visibility of the arts in Fairfax. The next RFP cycle for this program will be happening in late 2018.
