Call for candidates for new art residence at the Art Center/South Florida - posted by Florida Fine Art Blog

Call for candidates for new art residence at the Art Center/South Florida

Situated in the heart of South Beach on Lincoln Road, the new idea for an artists’ residence, proposed by the Art Center/ South Florida, is providing 38 separate workshops for artists working in the field of visual arts. Work by the artists is to be shown in workshops ranging in size from 16 to 84m², for a period of between six months and two years. 

For its new residency programme, the Art Center is looking for artists committed to innovation and experimentation, who want to develop their careers both from an artistic and a professional point of view, and who have an interest in contributing to the local, national, and international artist community. With a constant flow of visitors, the Art Center regularly organizes open exhibitions for the public.

Across its workshops, the center is also proposing opportunities for artists wishing to engage with art enthusiasts and collectors, as well as an intercultural exchange between artists based in South Florida, and the public. The first deadline for artists who want to apply to the programme is 30th September 2013. They can also apply at a later stage, before 31st January 2014, and again before 31st May 2014.

The call for candidates is open to professional artists working in the United States and abroad, who are not currently taking an academic course. The applications are examined by a committee composed of five renowned figures on the international art scene. Students are selected for the quality and value of their work, their potential, and for their ability to contribute to the residency’s broader community.

This looks like a great opportunity.  I have been going to exhibitions at the Art Center for decades now and many of my favorite local artists have shown here.  Always worth a look when your in Miami Beach and located on famous Lincoln Road.  GL
