Artist in Residence

In order to further support artists, Union Project created our Artist in Residence program. This residency provides the opportunity for an emerging artist to focus on their artwork and build their body of work, while taking part in a thriving ceramics community and serving the greater Pittsburgh community through teaching community arts programs and classes.
