The North Hill Residency is situated on over a half-acre of land in tree-lined Pasadena. On site there are independent studios with a 72-inch Leclerc loom, 20-cubic-foot Olympic kiln, and a communal woodshop. The house, which provides kitchen and living spaces, is a Victorian estate that dates to the late 19th century. The house is filled with artwork by past artist-residents and other artists from the area and around the world. The garden, designed by Petra Cortright, features colossal sculptures by Stan Edmondson and Sterling Ruby. In development are artist-run exhibition spaces designed by Katrin Terstegen. The North Hill Residency is a space for communal living, open thought and artistic exploration.
