Rauschenberg Residency

Emerging Program member

In 2012, the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation initiated a multidisciplinary residency program on the site of Rauschenberg's former home and studio in Captiva, Florida. Inspired by Rauschenberg’s experience at Black Mountain College, the residency values and supports risk-taking, experimentation and innovation.
The Rauschenberg Residency serves over 70 emerging and established artists annually through seven, month-long residencies. The program advances new bodies of work, extends practices into new mediums, and serves as a research and development laboratory for performance-based projects. The 20-acre site that stretches from beach to bay stimulates cross-disciplinary collaborations, as well as engenders a focus on the conservation of a sensitive and pristine environment.


Captiva, Florida: United States

The Rauschenberg Residency is sited on 20 acres bordering the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound on the island of Captiva in southwest Florida.
