The Fountainhead Residency
The Fountainhead Residency brings artists from around the world to live and work in Miami for up to two months. We host 3-4 artists at a time and between 30-40 artists per year. To date over 300 artists from 36 countries have taken part in the residency.
Held at The Residency monthly, Open Houses are a time when current resident artists open their studios and invite the public to experience their work, learn about their practice and build connections. It's an intimate venue to meet people from our community that share a common interest and values and engage in a dialog that only the arts can inspire.
