Test Site includes 24-hour access to an individual art studio space and printmaking studio at BDAC. This residency was designed to encourage artists' experimentation while they work towards a solo exhibition in our Annex Gallery.  Artists are selected annually by an outside juror.

Test Site's Emerging Artist Program provides a high-school student with 24-hour access to our studio during the summer.


2020 BDAC Test Site Artist-in-Residence: 

Sarah May


Sarah's artwork explores the intricacy of narrative through cyanotypes, film photography, poetic prose, and creating multimedia pieces such as retablo altars inspired by her Latinx culture and heritage. Her current work and exploration reflects her journey exploring and reclaiming her identity as an Indigenous Latina, a process cyclical, evolving, and intertwined with her own healing and decolonizing perspective.
