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.

“I’m back from Light Work! It was truly a great opportunity. I got a lot of work done. The Light Work staff was very helpful, engaging and accommodating! It was fun! I was able to do a lot of scanning of negatives from my archive, make xerox copies of selected images to edit for my book project.”
