"Fountainhead Residency was an incredible experience. Not only was I able to create work, show it to many people involved in the arts and of very high profile, gain feedback and develop opportunities from my time there, I was able to connect with Miami and the community on a deeper level."  –Simon Vega, Fountainhead Alum, El Salvador

Through The Fountainhead Residency, members meet 3-4 national and international artists each month. Gain knowledge and confidence as our intimate experiences take you up close and personal with artists and into the coveted artist’s studio, the backrooms of galleries and on curator led tours of museum exhibitions. Meet major collectors and learn how they got started.  Immerse yourself in the arts from the symphony and ballet, to the incredible architecture that surrounds us, and delectable cuisine thats popping up around Miami through our generous partners.
