2006 Artists-in-Residence Program

2006 Artists-in-Residence Program


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 award-winning studios that include a resource library, painting studio, sculpture studio, music studio, dance studio, writer’s studio, black box theater, 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/midcareer 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. The relaxed atmosphere and unstructured program provide considerable time for artistic regeneration and creation. Atlantic Center for the Arts provides housing (private room/bath), weekday meals (by on-site chef), and 24 hour access to shared studio spaces with wireless Internet.

For more information on how to apply, please telephone 386) 427-6975 or (800) 393-6975 (domestic US only) or visit www.atlanticcenterforthearts.org or email program@atlanticcenterforthearts.org

Atlantic Center for the Arts is pleased to announce, through the generous support of the Joan Mitchell Foundation, all painters and sculptors accepted into the 2006 Master Artists-in-Residence programs who demonstrate need will be recommended to receive full financial aid to attend the residency program. Artists from other disciplines may apply to ACA’s Financial Aid program.

“ACA is a wonderful environment. It stirs the stagnant brain and revitalizes one’s aims. Participants return to the world with fresh energy and new ideas.” William Gass, writer (Master Artist, February 2005)
