"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
