Momm and Popp  Residency For Parent Artists / Sustainable Arts Foundation Fellowship


Mounts and Marvels at Popps Emporium by Isamu Krieger (Momm and Popp Resident ’16) 

As parent artists ourselves, we know how difficult it is to maintain a practice and raise a family. We are fortunate to have created an environment in which our life, art and community are all interwoven. Launched in 2016, The Momm and Popp family residency invites parent artists into our unique arts ecosystem, to explore hybrid forms of life and work, in which children can become an intrinsic part of the workspace and creative experience.  

Families are housed in the Guest House, a single family house across the street from Popps Packing and adjacent to our workshop and expansive green spaces for a one month residency program. The Guest House is equipped with all the basics for small children (baby gates, playpen, crib, stroller, toys and books) and Popps staff can help coordinate childcare when needed.

Thanks to the generous support of the Sustainable Arts Foundation Fellowship Popps Packing is able to support a parent artist and their family for a one month residency during the month of  August  2019. The fellowship covers the Momm and Popp housing fee, and provides the selected artist with a stipend, travel, and childcare support.

The application deadline for the Sustainable Arts Foundation Fellowship has passed. Accepted Momm and Popp residents will be notified by the end of January 2019.

Kaitlynn Redell, a visual artist based in Los Angeles, CA. She received her BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2009 and her MFA from Parsons the New School for Design in 2013. Her practice is invested in the exploration of race and gender in relation to the body and how the body becomes codified within these socially constructed categorizations.

The 2017 program is made possible with support from the Sustainable Arts Foundation.

Kaitlynn lead a wonderful workshop, not her(e)  for local caregivers and children as part of her residency. So much about becoming a parent or a full-time caregiver is about becoming a tool, a piece of furniture, a physical, emotional, psychological support for a small, growing human. What does it mean to enter into this role? How has your identity as an individual changed? Based on group discussion on our collective feelings on caregiving, participants made wearable objects(prototypes) that both function as a useful tool in our everyday routines.”

Kaitlynn also wrote a nice piece about what to expect from our residency for Cultural Reproducers

Below are  works Kaitlynn created during her residency.
