ArtCenter/South Florida Addresses Sea Level Rise

Over a year long period, an artist will be embedded in the City of Miami Beach, helping to develop its resiliency plan. The Artist in Residence will have the opportunity to help address issues from coastal flooding to affordable housing and public transit, among others.

In Miami Beach, home to ArtCenter/South Florida, sea level rise is not a future concept. It’s an everyday reality that demands attention and solutions from all corners of the city. Flooding, both from rising tides and storms, is a common occurrence, making roads impassable, damaging homes and stressing the island’s infrastructure. ArtCenter/South Florida is launching the new Art in Public Life residency - a chance for artists to have a seat at the table and engage the public in ways to address these pressing issues. Over a year long period, an artist will be embedded in the City of Miami Beach, helping to develop its resiliency plan.

The Artist in Residence will have the opportunity to help address issues from coastal flooding to affordable housing and public transit, among others. Throughout the residency, the selected artist will develop artworks and public programs for and with the community, as well as provide meaningful insights to the city during this critical phase of planning. The results of the residency could have far-reaching impacts, as the work will be shared with other cities around the world facing similar challenges.

The program offers a $25,000 stipend for one-year residency, housing in Miami Beach, and a maximum of $7,500 in production funds. The residency will begin April 1, 2018.

Art in Public Life is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation as part of its Knight Arts Challenge, which funds the best ideas for bringing South Florida together through the arts.
