Rauschenberg Residency welcoming Berwick
Rachel Berwick (Department Head, Glass) will be an Artist in Residence at the Rauschenberg Foundation Residency on Captiva Island, Florida in June and July, 2015.
The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation (RRF) launched the Rauschenberg Residency in 2012–13 with a series of five pilot residencies that served to inform and shape the program. There are now seven one-month-long residencies annually that serve more than seventy artists and other creative individuals of exceptional talent and promise from a diverse mix of disciplines, backgrounds, ages, and career levels. The residency advances new work, extends practices into new mediums, and serves as a research and development lab for performance-based projects; it fosters the ideal that artistic practice advances mutual understanding; and it engenders a focus on the conservation of a sensitive and pristine environment.
