Artist in Residence
To honor the legacy of Charles Deering as Artist and Philanthropist, The Deering Estate supports emerging and mid-career artists who work in a multitude of disciplines and media. As an extension of this legacy, our Artist-in-Residence Program acts as an incubator for creative works and collaborative opportunities that engage the public. Studio Residencies are housed in our Artist Village Buildings, the Carriage House and Power House, and Project Residencies consist of specific interactions with the Estate and its resources.
As evident from our Artist in Residence Alumni, the Deering Estate’s Artist in Residence Program has been a catalyst for artistic practice and recognition including additional residencies, national and local grants, gallery representation, collection acquisitions, and community engagement. Literary Artists in our program can pursue their artistic discipline, create a body of work, and connect with other artists, while interacting with the historic, archeological and natural elements of the Estate’s inspiring environment.
Studio Residencies were awarded to: Literary artist Dana DeGreff, Design-based collective Home Eleven (Nelly Bonilla and Oscar Luna), Visual artists Frida Baranek, Elia Khalaf, Ryan Roa, and Miquel Salom. Project Residencies were awarded to Sound-based collective Archival Feedback (T. Wheeler Castillo and Emile Milgrim), Photographer Carlos Domenech, Painter Jacqueline Gopie, Multidisciplinary Driftologist-in-Residence Skip Snow, and Miami Dade College Kendall Campus for an international arts collaboration.
