Monthly Rental Waitlist
Dear Prospective Studio Artist:
We have been experiencing much longer than normal waitlist times for all of our monthly and semi private rentals due to increased demand and a decrease in the rate of vacancies. If you think you might be interested in getting monthly studio artist access in the future, please contact us ASAP to be placed on the waitlist.
Because of the increase in demand, we can no longer accommodate scheduled short term rentals.
Studio Artists relinquishing their monthly rental will have to place their name on the waitlist if they wish to return in the future.
