July 25, 2011

This summer, gay hard-body mecca Fire Island gets a dose of high culture with the first-ever residency program exclusively for LGBT artists, and non-gay artists working with queer subject matter, Aug. 12-26, 2011.

New York University academic administrator Chris Bogia and independent curator Evan Garza co-founded the program in the relatively subdued hamlet of Cherry Grove, where two to four artists are to live and work in a house for two weeks. Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston director Bill Arning and artist AA Bronson juried the applications. The Fire Island Artist Residency is currently in the process of securing nonprofit status.
