Call for entry for artists for a Unique Residency

“A Lighthouse in the Keys”

Number of Residencies: 1x in September

Wonderful experience! Our artists (there need to be two persons at a minimum, only one needs to be an artist though, no loners, sadly) will spend a month virtually alone in a lighthouse on an islet with all sorts of tropical flora and fauna, which includes the endangered Loggerhead turtle nesting grounds. This residency is only accessible by boat or by sea plane. This call to artists is open to all artists, writers musicians or performance artists.

Residency Overview:
$2,000 stipend
Housing in a large historic lighthouse on Loggerhead Key, an islet in the Florida Keys. Artists must pack in all supplies, equipment and food, and have a satellite phone or at minimum a SPOT type satellite beacon.

Location: Loggerhead Key (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loggerhead_Key) is the largest island of the Dry Tortugas. Covering about 49 acres, it is the site of the Loggerhead lighthouse, constructed in 1857. It was also formerly the location of the “Tortugas Laboratory”, built and operated by the Carnegie Research Institute, for tropical research, from 1904 until 1939. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, the key is known for its picturesque blue waters, Loggerhead turtles, superlative coral reefs and marine life, and the vast assortment of bird life that frequent the area.
