Cymbal Development And DLT Global Present An Artists-In-Residence Program At Oasis Pointe Residences

By   /  

Artists from all over the country are invited to apply to live and work for free in a state-of-the-art residential building in South Florida, which will open in the spring of 2022.

Cymbal DLT Arts Foundation, a foundation founded by Cymbal Development and DLT Global, is excited to announce the launch of its Artists-in-Residence Program at Oasis Pointe Residences, Cymbal Development, and DLT Global’s newest design-driven, multi-unit waterfront apartment complex set to open in Dania Beach in Spring 2022.

The program’s goal is to highlight the diversity, creativity, and soul of the arts community, as well as to advocate for artists working in a variety of media and artistic approaches.

The foundation is currently accepting applications for the 2022 Artists-in-Residence Program from artists all over the country.

Oasis Pointe is inviting up-and-coming creatives from all professional backgrounds, demographics, career stages, and artistic styles to live and work for free in its state-of-the-art residential building for up to six months as part of the Artists-in-Residence Program.

Artists’ partners, children, and pets will be welcome throughout the duration of the program.

To be eligible, artists must have a bachelor’s, master’s, or Ph.D., be beginning a professional path in the arts, or be looking to use the residency to cultivate a project.

“South Florida is known for its vibrant art communities, including museums, colorful street murals, art walks, exhibitions, studios, and Art Basel, the leading global platform connecting collectors, galleries, and artists,” says Asi Cymbal, president of Cymbal Development.

“In an ideal world, art would be free and accessible for everyone, and that is why we felt it was imperative to launch an Artists-in-Residence Program where we can provide a unique opportunity for creatives to advance their careers through access to our space, community connections, and financial support.”

Artists will be able to stay at Oasis Pointe for up to six months rent-free and fully furnished.

Successful applicants and their families may be invited to extend their residency at Oasis Pointe or any other Cymbal DLT community in South Florida after completing their residency.

In exchange, the Artists-in-Residence Program requests that up to two original works be donated to the permanent collection of Oasis Pointe and displayed in the building’s common areas.

The scope of work will be determined individually in collaboration with the artist.

In order to foster a meaningful dialogue between the artists and the residential community, artists will be asked to share their practice on the property at least once during their stay, either through an open studio or a lecture/slideshow.

Artists interested in applying should send images of up to five work pieces as well as an artist statement to Residency@CymbalDevelopment.com.

Applications are being accepted now and will be accepted until February 15, 2022.

The winners will be chosen by a carefully selected panel of local art professionals and announced by March 1, 2022. Artists will be able to move in around May 1, 2022 or later.
