The artist will be chosen by a panel that includes Blanton staff, artistic leadership of SoundSpace, and a guest sound/music curator. Applications are due September 1, and the residency will begin in December 2017.

Atlantic Center for the Arts Master Artist Residency
Location: New Smyrna Beach, FL

The residency is also unique in that it focuses on creating conversations and the sharing of ideas between three disciplines per program, which can include visual artists, writers, dancers, and musicians as well as many other types of art. ACA believes that the spirit and challenges of being an artist are shared by all disciplines and that we can learn much from coming together, sharing our work and ideas, and collaborating on projects.
