The Opportunity
Cherry Street Pier has 14 studio spaces. 13 out of the 14 studios are currently rented by our first cohort of artists. Please fill out the studio submission form below. The application deadline is November 11.

Studio Details
  • Eight studios on the ground floor at 443 square feet = $500 per month
  • Six studios on the mezzanine level at 289 square feet each = $400 per month
  • Licensing a studio entails additional rights to approximately 2,000 square feet of collaborative workspace within the pier and to preferential access to market and exhibition spaces within the pier.
  • All studios are fully conditioned with heat and air conditioning as well as 100 amp single phase service.
  • Studios do not have their own plumbing, but there is shared access to a sink in the collaborative work space and access to public restrooms in the pier.
  • Studios are unfurnished.
  • Studios will be accessible to licensees 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and DRWC will provide security on site. 

The studios will be managed by DRWC. Once selected, artists will be expected to sign a license agreement with DRWC to secure their space in the pier. The standard term for the agreement will be one year, but DRWC is open to shorter-term licenses for those interested. Please note that should a licensee not be able to provide their own insurance, they may buy into The Cherry Street Pier Artists Group Policy, which will be established by DRWC. 

Values-Based Criteria for Selection:

Reflect an Authentic Philadelphia – Licensees should reflect the population of Philadelphia and include traditionally under-represented populations

Provide Diverse Offerings – Licensees should represent a broad range of artistic disciplines (within the constraints of the space) and experience levels

Support Emerging Artists and Entrepreneurs – Licensees should be poised to benefit from being a part of Cherry Street Pier creatively and professionally

Support Learning and Collaboration – Licensees should be willing and eager to be a part of a collaborative, community-focused initiative
