About this opportunity

The Alex Brown Foundation is currently accepting applications for its 2025 artist residency program. Applications will be accepted from artists working in any medium. The Alex Brown Foundation Residency Program aims to provide emerging and established artists of exceptional merit with an experience of the working conditions that artist Alex Brown found in Des Moines, IA—the ability to make the work you want to make, free from the daily influence of being immersed in a major metropolitan scene but without the isolation of a rural residency, in an exceptional studio environment and a relaxed and pleasant living environment.  


  • Studio: Dedicated use of a 1400 sq. ft. studio space at Mainframe Studios, a renovated 1970s telecommunications building in downtown Des Moines.
  • Stipend: A monthly stipend of $1,000, plus up to $1,000 airfare or reimbursement for other travel to and from Des Moines. Stipends are adjusted according to the agreed residency duration.
  • Housing: The foundation provides a fully furnished one-bedroom apartment situated in a quiet centrally located neighborhood, just a 3-minute drive and a 14-minute walk from the studio.


  • Must be 18 years or older.
