Atlantic Center for the Arts hosts its 145th  artists-in-residence program with Master Artists: PAUL DRESHER- composer, JOANNE GREENBAUM- visual artist, GREGORY ORR- poet, and 24 Associate Artists from across the globe.  Selected through a competitive application process, the arriving artists will have the opportunity to work and collaborate with their contemporaries for three weeks.

Each residency gives the public five free opportunities to interact with artists over a three-week period. From opening receptions, to outreaches at universities and other cultural institutions, and an opportunity to tour artist studios and attend an informal presentation of their works, Atlantic Center provides amazing opportunities for the public to come in contact with, learn from, and engage with contemporary artists who are creating our cultural legacy.  Check calendar below for receptions & outreach events.
