Full Shop Access: Artist Rental Program

The Artist Rental program allows 24-hour access to the Zygote print shop, and is $140 a month. This full shop access through the Artist Rental program is available to current Zygote artist members ($50 yearly), and includes one flatfile drawer for personal storage.

How to become an Artist Renter:

Communicate with Shop Manager, Rebekah (at) zygotepress (dot) org to coordinate an initial meeting to:

  • Assess level of printmaking experience
  • Conduct a shop tutorial
  • Receive all contracts, payments and membership materials
  • Distribute code and user handbook
  • Pay your first month’s rent

Upon payment and review of process, you’ll get a unique access code to enter Zygote’s shop. All artist renters must be comfortable using the studio with no supervision. Zygote Press reserves the right to deny or revoke access to a printer if they violate shop policies.

The rate for monthly artists rental is $140. There is a reduced rate of $95 for students, former employees and former interns.
