The Summer Studios residency was developed in 2006 to provide an opportunity for emerging artists to work on the PRH site, transforming the art houses into temporary studios and engaging the community. The residency is open to seven local college or university students who are nominated by professors and selected by a panel. Through critiques with local artists and curators, discussions with the mentors and visits to other local art spaces, the residents spent six weeks learning to blend their practices into a social context that extends outside of the studio to ignite dialogues and help us see ourselves and others differently.
