ARTSAIL RESIDENCY & RESEARCH PROGRAM – CALL FOR ENTRY

ARTSail Residency & Research Program
Deadline: Thursday June 30, 2016 | 11:59 pm (EST)

This Fall ArtCenter/South Florida will launch ARTSail, an artist residency aboard a sailboat, with a $40,000 grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, as part of its 2015 Knight Arts Challenge.

ARTSail, in partnership with the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, is a nomadic, floating art project that seeks to explore and take advantage of the extensive coastlines and waterways that surround Miami. ArtCenter will host one-month residencies on Miami’s waterways aboard a vessel where artists will be commissioned to create work inspired by Miami’s relationship to the water.

Water has played a pivotal role in shaping the identity of Miami and its communities and is increasingly becoming a central theme in ecological discussions. ARTSail residencies will offer creative solutions to develop awareness in the community about environmental concerns and engage the public in the discovery, preservation and protection of South Florida’s waterways.

Independent curator Ombretta Agró Andruff will manage the program and curate a variety of projects in conjunction with the residencies. Applications for the 2017 residencies are available.
