Visiting Artist Program

Since 2009, CSP has invited artists to come work in Bisbee through our Visiting Artist Program. 

We love being a conduit for cultural exchange and artists love coming to work here in our facility. The program was founded on a loose guideline that the artists’ work consider and incorporates our community and/or our location here in the southeast Arizona desert. They get a studio and an opportunity to share their practice through workshops,, events, and presentations. CSP has hosted Plein air painters, a printmaker, performance artists, sound artists, filmmakers, installaton artists, and cross disciplinary artists.

Central School’s Visiting Artist Program is funded by the Bisbee Foundation, the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona.
