YoungArts Residency in Visual Arts
YoungArts, with the generous support of The Related Group, has established the YoungArts Residency in Visual Arts, the first of several residency programs in the visual, literary, design and performing arts the organization is developing as it expands its support of the next generation of artists in the United States and strengthens its place as a creative-catalyst for Miami's growing cultural landscape. The YoungArts Residency in Visual Arts will be extended to at least three outstanding visual artists a year, offering them the opportunity to become immersed in the Miami community while developing their work.
The program welcomed the accomplished painter Suzanne McClelland as the inaugural artist in residence this past June and we are thrilled to announce that multimedia artist James Weingrod has been selected as the next artist in residence. Weingrod started his residency in November and is currently working on the YoungArts campus (through December 2014).
“This residency through YoungArts is an honor and represents an extraordinary opportunity for me,” stated James Weingrod. “Thanks to the National YoungArts Foundation’s generosity, I am looking forward to expanding my art practice, to exploring a part of the country unknown to me, and most especially the chance to work with the talented young artists who are part of the YoungArts program.”
The YoungArts Residency in Visual Arts provides artists with time, space and resources; help them forge key relationships; and give them the chance to work in Miami and engage with its community. Artists participating in the program will receive:
- An honorarium of up to $10,000
- Stipend to cover travel, project and other related expenses
- 3 to 12 weeks of housing provided by The Related Group with studio space on the YoungArts Campus
- The opportunity to work and meet with master artists, collectors, gallerists and curators from the international art community
