A New South Florida Artist in Residence Program at JCBA

Florida Atlantic University proudly announces the Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program in coordination with the Jaffe Center for Book Arts for Spring Semester 2012. Income from this endowed fund, established in 2011 by poet and artist Helen M. Salzberg, will enable artists working in the Book Arts to come to JCBA on a semester basis to work and teach at the center. While here, the artist will produce a creative project using JCBA studios and also teach a workshop for FAU students and the general public and mentor FAU students as his or her schedule allows. We are excited about the opportunity for our students to work alongside highly talented and creative book artists.

The Artist in Residence (AIR) that is selected each semester will get his or her own office at JCBA and full use of the JCBA studios (papermaking, letterpress and book studios). The artist’s residency will last for 12 weeks, though shorter or longer residencies may be accommodated as needed. The AIR will receive a stipend of $5,000 for the semester. The artist is responsible for transportation, housing, parking, meals and materials for his or her creative project. JCBA will provide materials for workshops.

The Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program is an ongoing program with two residencies scheduled per year. The inaugural residency, for the Spring Semester 2012, is expected to take place within the period of January 7, 2012 through May 4, 2012. Book artists from all over the country and indeed the world are encouraged to apply.
