, , has launched a new Artist in Residence grant program designed to create an engaging and inspiring living experience for residents. The program, currently being piloted at two South Florida properties (Midtown 24 in Plantation and Beach Walk at Sheridan in Dania Beach), will provide no-cost housing and studio space for up to one year for the visual artist selected.
In return, grant recipients will be responsible for implementing community-wide, on-site art programs, children’s art classes, live painting demonstrations and other creative enrichment opportunities that bring the community together and enhance the resident living experience.
“As a leading multifamily firm, we’re constantly seeking new and innovative ways to enhance the resident experience and embrace the community,” said Joe Lubeck, CEO of American Landmark. “One of the best ways to do that is through art, which creates a vibrant and engaging atmosphere that brings people together for a shared experience. Today’s residents want more than a place to live, they want a home where they can thrive, meet others and share unique experiences, and American Landmark is at the forefront of inspiration in that realm with this program.”
Grant applications are being accepted until March 1, 2020, and residencies will begin on May 1, 2020. Artists over the age of 18 who work in a variety of visual arts disciplines are welcome to apply, including muralists, large scale painters, public artists, mixed media artists and installation artists.
