2012 MASTER ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM
MAY 14 – JUNE 3, 2012
Application Deadline: February 3, 2012
Since 1982, Atlantic Center’s residency program has provided artists from all artistic disciplines with spaces to live, work, and collaborate during three-week residencies. Located just four miles from the east coast beaches of central Florida, the pine and palmetto wooded environment contains national award-winning studios that include a resource library, painting studio, sculpture studio, music studio, dance studio, black box theater, writers’ studio, and digital computer lab. Each residency session includes three master artists of different disciplines. The master artists each personally select a group of associates—talented, emerging and mid-career artists—through an application process administered by ACA. During the residency, artists participate in informal sessions with their group, collaborate on projects, and work independently on their own projects. The relaxed atmosphere and unstructured program provide considerable time for artistic regeneration and creation. Atlantic Center for the Arts provides housing (private room/bath with work desk), weekday meals (provided by ACA chef) and 24-hour access to shared studio space.
$800 in Financial Aid is available to all painters anad sculptors accpeted into the program through the generous support of the Joan Mitchell Foundation. Limited Financial Aid is available to qualified applicants.
*All applications must be postmarked by the application deadline date.
