About

The Addrienne and Kelly duo is about supporting artists and creatives.  This Artist in Residence Kickstarter is another way to support artists by fully subsidizing their art studios in the Warehouse.  Artists will have the freedom to explore new projects and by doing so they are making an investment in their careers.

The Boulder Creative Collective has proven to be a vital part of the Boulder art scene since 2013-over the years it has evolved to become an alternative art space where the unexpected is invited.  Over the last six years, The BCC has exhibited over 50 different artists working in various mediums from oil paint, to printmaking, to the written word, to bronze, to large scale installation, to digital practices.  While concepts and mediums may differ the one commonality is that it's a challenge for artists to continue their creative edge when they're in need of selling work to pay their studio fees.  In a community where the real estate is increasing at a rate of 7-12% each year, it's hard to imagine a way that working artists will be able to continue to afford to create in Boulder.  The BCC believes the most important path to take is to restructure The BCC Warehouse to be an artist in residence.  With this pilot program, accepted artists will commit to working 15 hours or more in their studios to fulfill their project proposals at the end of the 12 month residence.  Each artist will exhibit their work in The AKA Gallery in The BCC Warehouse during their residency.

We will continue the practice of supporting artists with critiques, guest curator critiques, artist statement revisions, proper photography documentation to best represent the artwork, social media guidance and savvy, personalized business direction.

Riffing on a quote from American Pop-Artist Ed Ruscha, "It might be a struggle but you have to follow a path of your own creation." We believe in following your own path, but with less of a struggle! The BCC is committed to creating this opportunity and has begun the transition.

Risks and challenges

The potential risks and challenges are straightforward- these funds will directly contribute to the foundation of the residency. $25,000 is the bottom line of what is needed to establish this program. Reaching our goal will keep the doors open for the next 5 months as the organization continues its fundraising efforts moving towards a fully funded year ahead. We are taking a risk trusting that you, the local resident, the supporter of the arts, the viewer from afar, will agree on the benefits of this cause and also believe in its worth through its lasting impact for future generations. The greatest challenges that lie ahead are continuing to connect through and educate on the value of artistic expression.

What will our community become without the freedom of expression and the space to create? This is a necessity to keep the forward-thinkers and future creators working in this town. Culture fuels vitality and becomes the heartbeat of a vibrant city; this program will become a pillar of our community. We have done the work, and will continue to clear a path moving forward to reach our goals.
