May 2 Artist Talk, June 1 Deadline

Artist Talk with Alice Raymond, Artist-in-Residence-in-Everglades
Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 7:00pm
Dimensions Variable,
100 NE 11th Street, Miami FL 33132
For the past few weeks AIRIE Fellow Alice Raymond has been working on an experimental mapping project, experiencing visitors' perspectives on the Everglades National Park. In this artist talk she'll share reflections on this project and her time at AIRIE.
Alice Raymond's previous work
Alice has been busy meeting rangers, scientists, and friends exploring the park with them to get their perspective. With a focus on human actions made through the park, she aims to get a global or outside sense of the use of the park, using her own view to put in balance others' perspectives. Alice is interested in questioning the sense of wildness and landscape, looking at its evolution through decades and projects, pointing out the permanent changes. She uses the vocabulary of maps as an example of the distortion between reality, perception and representation.

Following Alice's talk we'll share more information about the residency and the application.
June 1 Deadline for 2014 Artist-in-Residence-in-Everglades Program

AIRIE Application
The Artist-in-Residence-in-Everglades (AIRIE) program is now accepting applications for month-long residencies in Everglades National Park (ENP) from visual and performing artists, writers, and composers.

AIRIE, managed by the Volunteers-in-Parks program and supported by AIRIE, Inc., a 501©3 not-for-profit organization, offers artists the opportunity to live and work in this unique environment for a month at a time. Artists interact with Park visitors by providing exhibitions, workshops, and lectures. After the residency Artists donate a piece of art, representative of their style. It is hoped that the work will characterize the Everglades for present and future generations, giving park visitors and the general public an opportunity to see our heritage through the eyes and ears of contributing artists.
