The Matthew J. Mahoney Artist-in-Residence program is named in honor of our dear friend, the prolific and talented artist Matt Mahoney, who passed away in 2017. Matt was SDAI's second artist-in-residence, and helped develop and grow this important program that has as significant impact on the lives of emerging artists as they create new, contemporary work.
Artists and curators working in all media and at any stages of their career were welcome to apply for an approximate 3 month residency. The selected resident receives a private, 200 sq. ft. studio space to create new work, culminating in a presentation at the San Diego Art Institute in Balboa Park.
