The mission of ArtCenter/South Florida is to support artists and advance the knowledge and practice of contemporary visual arts and culture in South Florida. ArtCenter creates opportunities for experimentation and innovation and encourages the exchange of ideas across cultures through residencies,public programs, exhibitions, education and outreach.
ARTSail resident artists and curators work alongside scientists to bring awareness in the community about environmental concerns and engage the public in the discovery, preservation and protection of South Florida’s waterways.
Studio Residents receive affordable working studios, parking, access to seminars and other resources to develop their artistic practice.
Resident Artists receive production support for the creation of new work, as well as exhibition opportunities. Image: Geo Vanna Gonzalez creating a piece for the installation "HOW-TO: Lean forward, test solutions" (currently on view at ArtCenter/South Florida).
As part of the studio residency program, artists receive studio visits from local, national and international curators.
Through an International Exchange Program with partner organizations, ArtCenter gives resident artists and alumni the opportunity to travel for international residencies to expand their global networks and gain exposure for their work. In exchange, we hosts artists and curators for short-term residencies at the ArtCenter.
ArtCenter/South Florida's studio residency program provides the time and space where artists can come together, exchange ideas and advance their artistic practice. For three decades, ArtCenter has supported more than 1,000 visual artists through residencies and exhibitions. Today, we continue to serve artists with studio spaces and resources to advance their careers at our Miami Beach & Downtown Miami locations. ArtCenter also provides artists international residency opportunities with partner organizations, fully-funded fellowship programs for cultural producers working in a variety of artistic disciplines and theme-based residencies like ARTSail, which takes place on the water, and Art-in-Public Life, in city government.
