Rauschenberg Residency Announces Residents for Artists' Community Administrator Residency

"We look forward to introducing our peers to the Rauschenberg Residency, which is infused with a unique history, beauty and serenity."

Captiva, FL - The Rauschenberg Residency has announced the ten artists chosen for this fall's Artists' Community Administrator Residency! The residency is designed to provide creative time and space for practicing artists of all disciplines who also work at an Alliance of Artists Communities member organization. “The seed has been germinating for years, as the impetus to provide support for those who do what we do is one that profoundly resonates," wrote Ann Brady, Director of the Rauschenberg Residency. These ten artists were selected from a competitive pool of applications, representing 15 states across the US and a variety of artistic disciplines. They reflect the range and diversity of AAC's over 500 member programs and their staff. The artists will spend two weeks on the Rauschenberg Residency’s beautiful campus in Captiva, Florida from September 30 – October 14, 2018. Congratulations to the awardees!

About the Rauschenberg Residency

The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation launched the Rauschenberg Residency in 2012 when it converted Bob’s former home in Captiva, Florida – where he lived and worked for 40 years – into a multidisciplinary artists’ community inspired by Bob’s years at Black Mountain College.

The 20-acre site that stretches from beach to bay stimulates cross-disciplinary collaborations, as well as engenders a focus on the conservation of a sensitive and pristine environment. The Rauschenberg Residency advances new bodies of work, extends practices into new mediums, and serves as a research and development lab for individual and group projects.
