For the past decade and a half, Tom of Finland Foundation has hosted Artists-in-Residence at TOM House, located in Echo Park, Los Angeles. We are excited to announce that we are now opening up the applications for this program to the public. Tom of Finland Foundation invites ten erotic artists annually, for three months at a time throughout the year, to work on a project that they will present at the end of their stay.

We are grateful for the opportunity to offer this residency that supports artists in their pursuit of creating erotic artwork. As a part of the program, artists will have the opportunity to explore the immense and rare erotic archives of Tom of Finland Foundation and work in the nurturing and inspiring world of TOM House.

Applications will be open until the end of October 2021 and artists will be selected for residency in 2022.
