FIAR provides free live/work space to five selected artist residents who work, research, relax, and immerse themselves in the Fire Island community, during which time they are visited by a handful of renowned visiting artists, curators, and art professionals who commune with residents through intimate visits, dinners, and discussions, providing support and feedback. FIAR is currently accepting applications for its 2014 summer program. For more details visit: www.FireislandArtistResidency. org
