Architect Steve Badanes with architect/art educator Sharon and Peter Exley, and landscape architect Richard Haag will lead an Atlantic Center residency program between
August 7 and 27, 2006. The application deadline is May 19.
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 digitalcomputer 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.
