ArtCenter/South Florida’s Studio Residency Program is ideal for artists who are committed to experimentation and innovation, seeking artistic & professional development, and are interested in being a part of and contributing to a dynamic community of local, national and international artists and creative thinkers. For a period of six months up to two years, artists are granted partially-subsidized studios at ArtCenter’s Miami Beach campus located in the heart of South Beach on Lincoln Road, a commercial pedestrian mall, offering a unique residency experience in an urban, yet tropical setting.

With a constant flow of visitors, ranging from beach lovers to art collectors, an ArtCenter residency offers opportunities for engagement and cross-cultural exchange with South Florida-based artists and audiences. In addition to studios, artists are offered extensive exhibition opportunities in South Florida as well as national and international venues; professional development opportunities including studio visits with noted South Florida-based, national and international curators; participation in Fieldwork sessions, a peer oriented critique session; and workshops such as proposal writing, writing an artist statement, budgeting, etc.

ArtCenter houses 17 partially-subsidized workspaces appropriate for visual artists working in most mediums.  Studios range from 175 to 600 square feet. Studio rents are currently charged at $9.00 per square foot on an annual basis.  Additional charges include a common area fee, an energy surcharge and 7% sales tax. Monthly rents range from $260-$700 on average. Shared workspaces are also available. All terms of the rental agreement are carefully explained to the applicant prior to signing.
