Founded in 2006 by artist Joe Tuggle Lacina—and redesigned by Molly and Joe in 2011—for ten years Grin City Collective existed as an artist residency program of the Grinnell Area Arts Council. During the decade, the program provided 200 artists the time and space to work on their independent projects.
Grin City Collective's Artists Residency Program offered 3-week or 6-week long residencies on a 320-acre farm in Central Iowa. Residents receive a private studio, bedroom and a collaborative working atmosphere
This prototype was presented at the Science Center of Iowa.
