In 1995, Linda Pace, herself a San Antonio artist, founded Artpace in a former automobile showroom, which she converted into a high-tech studio. Artpace offers one of the best artist residencies, awarded by nomination, in which artists live and work for two months in the private apartments and studio spaces of this sleek facility. The artists are provided with technical support, a weekly stipend, and a hefty budget for supplies.
