Since 1982, Atlantic Center for the Arts Master Artists in-Residence Program has provided artists from all artistic disciplines with spaces to live, work, and collaborate during three-week residencies. Each residency includes three master artists of different disciplines. The master artists each personally select a small group of emerging and mid-career 'Associate Artists' - through a competitive application process administered by ACA. During the residency, the selected 'Associate Artists' work independently on their own projects, participate in discussions with their Master Artist and others in their group, as well as interact or collaborate with artists in other disciplines. The relaxed atmosphere, unstructured program and lush, unspoiled environment provide considerable time for artistic experimentation, exploration and creation.
