OLiVE DTLA Launches Artist-In-Residence Search
Selected Artist to Receive Rent-Free Loft Apartment during Six-Month Residency
LOS ANGELES, California – March 10, 2017 – OLiVE DTLA, a newly developed, art-inspired leasing community in Downtown Los Angeles (1243 S. Olive Street), announced today the launch of the OLiVE DTLA Artist-in-Residence Project (AiR), a first-of-its-kind program for a Los Angeles-area apartment building. OLiVE and a panel of art industry experts, begin their search today for a painter, muralist, mixed media, or graphic artist who will receive a six-month residency, which includes: a brand new two-story loft apartment with free rent during the residency; interior and public-facing exterior wall opportunities to feature artwork; monthly showcase exhibits in communal spaces; and up to $2,000 per month in art supplies.
“The OLiVE DTLA Artist-in-Residence Project is an opportunity for us to further celebrate and contribute to the vibrancy of the DTLA art scene,” said Matt Perrin, Executive VP of Asset Management at The Wolff Company, developers of OLiVE. “The culture of DTLA is defined, in large part, by the extraordinary art you see in public spaces and on the exterior walls of buildings across the city. We’ve embraced this from the beginning at OLiVE, with many of our walls featuring commissioned work from celebrated local artists like David Flores, Hauser and Dave Kinsey.”
Partnering with OLiVE for the search is Street Art House, an experiential event producer that creates curated experiences, mural commissions and content, showcasing the works of artists from around the world.
“We’re excited to join OLiVE DTLA Artist-in-Residence Project as a curation partner,” shared Justin Fredericks, Co-founder of Street Art House. “Our collaboration reflects a shared vision of supporting and showcasing artists, in public and private spaces. The building’s beautiful interior and exterior architecture – including the airy loft – provides a great canvas for participating artists and a ‘living gallery’ for residents and visitors.”
Artists interested in applying to become the AiR can submit an application at OLiVEDTLAair.com. Deadline for submissions is April 7, 2017. Three finalists will be announced on April 17, 2017, with each artist showcased in a short documentary film and featured prominently online and at OLiVE in its common spaces.
The winning artist will be named on May 18, 2017, at the OLiVE DTLA AiR Show. The event will feature portfolio pieces from each of the three finalists, including art made specifically for the project. The OLiVE DTLA AiR Show will also activate the community’s array of amenity spaces, including its pool and spa area, rooftop sun decks, clubhouse and expansive mezzanine courtyard.
