Fire Island Artist Residency for LGBTQ Emerging Artists

Artist Residency
Deadline: March 24

Fire Island Artist Residency
Fire Island, NY

Celebrating its ninth season on Fire Island in Cherry Grove, NY this year, Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR) is now accepting applications for its internationally recognized summer residency program for artists identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer. LGBTQ emerging artists demonstrating new perspectives in contemporary visual art are encouraged to apply

Accepted artists will be required to work collaboratively with PPAC to design two public program events. These programs are open to interpretation and have no bearing on final selections. Please do not include proposals for these events in your application.

Five selected visual artists and for the first time, three selected poets will share a live/work space in the historically queer island hamlet of Cherry Grove, NY for a four-week program marked by intimate studio visits with, and public lectures by, renowned leaders in contemporary art and curation. The program is free to residents, who are provided with a stipend for meals and a free, modest live/work space.

Fees: $45
