The Foundation sponsors two types of Artist-in-Residence programs; one for painters and one for photographers.

The Artist Apprenticeship Program located in San Juan, Puerto Rico, with the Museo de Puerto Rico (MAPR) provides a full-year residency for a visual artist. The foundation also recently announced two photographer-in-residence programs. One residency is at Light Work located in Syracuse, New York, providing a one-month residency on the campus of Syracuse University. The second residency is with the Ogden Museum of Southern Art located in New Orleans providing a two month residency.

Emerging artists benefit from residency programs by being provided with state-of-the art technology resources, sponsorship, mentoring and visibility in front of art patrons to showcase one’s work during the residency. In addition, emerging artists provide art instruction to high-school and university students through the Artist Apprenticeship Program in Puerto Rico actively encouraging youth to pursue their dreams in the fine arts.
