Goodyear Arts

Charlotte, NC

Goodyear Arts (GYA) is an artist-led, nonprofit residency and multi-disciplinary events program based on this truth: Artists need space, time, money, and community. In underused commercial spaces, we offer paid studio residencies for excellent and daring local artists and present free-and-public arts events including the visual, performing, and literary arts. We showcase the work of resident and visiting artists through our exhibition program and give space to worthy but placeless artistic and community endeavors through our public programs. Since 2015, GYA has broadened the community’s access to new artistic practices by supporting artists, curators, and organizers in an inclusive setting which celebrates experimentation and risk taking. GYA events are almost always free and are presented in an accessible, street-level setting.
