Artists Nationwide Invited to Apply to Live and Work for Free in State-of-the-Art Residential Building in South Florida Opening Spring 2022
DANIA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/—Cymbal DLT Arts Foundation, a foundation established by Cymbal Development and DLT Global, is proud to announce the launch of its Artists-in-Residence Program at Oasis Pointe Residences, Cymbal Development and DLT Global’s newest design-driven, multi-unit waterfront apartment complex opening in Dania Beach in Spring 2022. The program aims to highlight the diversity, creativity, and soul of the arts community and advocate for artists across a spectrum of media and artistic approaches. The foundation is currently calling for submissions to the 2022 Artists-in-Residence Program from artists nationwide.
As part of the Artists-in-Residence Program, Oasis Pointe is inviting up-and-coming creatives from all professional backgrounds, demographics, career stages, and artistic styles to live and work for free in its state-of-the-art residential building for up to six months. Artists’ partners, children, and pets will also be welcomed for the entire stay of the program. To be eligible, artists are required to either hold a bachelor’s, master’s, or Ph.D., be starting on a professional path in the arts, or be seeking to utilize the residency to cultivate a project.
“South Florida is known for its vibrant art communities, including museums, colorful street murals, art walks, exhibitions, studios, and Art Basel, the leading global platform connecting collectors, galleries, and artists,” said Asi Cymbal, president of Cymbal Development. “In an ideal world, art would be free and accessible for everyone, and that is why we felt it was imperative to launch an Artists-in-Residence Program where we can provide a unique opportunity for creatives to advance their careers through access to our space, community connections, and financial support.”
Artists will receive up to a six-month rent-free, fully-furnished residency at Oasis Pointe. At the completion of their residency, successful applicants and their families may be invited to extend their residency at Oasis Pointe or in any other Cymbal DLT community in South Florida. In exchange, the Artists-in-Residence Program requests that up to two original works be gifted to Oasis Pointe’s permanent collection to be displayed in the building’s common areas. The scope of work will be determined on an individual basis in conjunction with the artist.
In an effort to create a meaningful dialogue between the artists and the residential community, artists will also be requested to share their practice via an open studio or lecture/slideshow on the property at least once during their stay.
Artists interested in applying to the program need to submit images of up to five works and an artist statement to Residency@CymbalDevelopment.com. Applications will be accepted now through February 15, 2022. The winners will be chosen by a carefully selected panel of art professionals from the local community and announced by March 1, 2022. Artists can move in around May 1, 2022 or later.
