Artists-in-Residence Program begins
For its 148th Artists-in-Residence Program, Atlantic Center for the Arts, in New Smyrna Beach, will host Master Artists Carolyn Forché, poetry/memoir; Pat Oleszko, visual and performance art; and Richard Teitelbaum, composer.
The program provides artists the opportunity to work and collaborate with contemporary masters.
Selected through a competitive application process by the master artists with whom they wish to work, these associate artists come from around the world, and are university professors, post-graduate students, professionals or full-time artists.
The residencies culminate with "INsideOUT," a public presentation of works-in-progress developed during the residency.
