This art show features pieces by resident artists of the Rauschenberg Residency over the years. The pieces will vary in medium, displaying the vast range of artists the residency supports.
Robert Rauschenberg’s 20-acre estate on Captiva Island, Florida, which was his home and studio for 40 years, has been transformed into a creative center that welcomes artists from around the world to live, work, and create.
The residency advances new work, extends practices into diverse mediums, and serves as a research and development lab. It fosters the ideal that artistic practice advances mutual understanding. It stimulates cross-disciplinary collaborations, and engenders a focus on the conservation of a sensitive and pristine environment.
Since 2012, almost 500 artists have been in residence, briefly making Captiva their home and finding magic in its bounty and beauty. When the residency ends, some of the artists – painters, writers, musicians, dancers – have wanted to share work they created. They leave a print, a photograph, a video, a poem – tangible reminders that this month of exploration was an amalgam of inspiration, productivity, collaboration, and renewal – often life changing and always unforgettable. The exhibition, Rauschenberg Residency: Explorations and Experimentations, presents work by 30 of those artists.Read More at Captiva Civic Assn. on EventBrite
