2020 Art Omi: Writers Alumni Residency

Click here to watch the Writers Virtual Reading from October 27, 2020.

From September 4 - November 5, Art Omi invited 13 alumni (and one new resident!) of our Art Omi: Writers program to join us for a residency reimagined for these times. For some of these writers, this was the first excursion beyond their immediate surroundings since the onset of the pandemic in New York, in March. We are thrilled to know that with careful planning, we can continue to offer crucial space and time to the artists even during these uncertain times.
