This summer offered a unique experience for the Summer Studios residents. This year’s mentors were CASE-PRH Fellows Regina Agu & Eyakem Gulilat. The students had an opportunity to build and share with one another by receiving individual/group critiques by the fellows and other artists/curators, provide post discussions on readings, and visits to other organizations throughout the city. The residents' projects opened to the public on Saturday, August 11 at the Summer Studios Opening & Community Market.

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.
