Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR) is an organization founded in 2011 which brings lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer identifying emerging artists to Fire Island,
a place long-steeped in LGBTQ history, to create, commune, and contribute to the location's rich artistic history.
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
