USA United States of America
ATLANTIC CENTER FOR THE ARTS calls for artists to apply for their 2009 MASTER ARTISTS-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAM which runs FEBRUARY 16 - MARCH 8, 2009 (Application Deadline: October 17, 2008) RESIDENCY #132. Masters for this session are MOLISSA FENLEY, dance/choreography,
BOB HOLMAN, poetry, and JAMES SIENA, visual arts. 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, 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. Financial Aid is available to qualified applicants.
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 us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
* All applications must be postmarked by the application deadline date.
* 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 2009 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.

"The lush scrub hammock forest of the Atlantic Center for the Arts provided a beautiful and savage backdrop for heady discourse. I am pleased to say that the Associate Artists I selected were of the highest caliber... and the friendships which were forged over this brief time will doubtlessly continue for a lifetime."
Mark Dion, visual artist (Master Artist, 2008)
"ACA was more than I expected. The beauty, the smells, the sounds of the place all combined as a calming background to some hard work and thought."
Anne Harding Woodworth, poet (Associate Artist, 2008)
