AIRIE Summer Salon
For more than ten years, the Aritsts in Residence in Everglades (AIRIE) has given creatives the time and space to contemplate and make new work deep within the River of Grass. The residency hosts artists, writers, choreographers and composers for a month at a time, every month of the year–yes, even in buggy and sultry August! Notable past residents include Mark Dion and Dana Sherwood, Trong Gia Nguyen, and Naomi Fisher.
Later this year the residency will host Gustavo Matamoros of iSaw Subtropics, the journalist Bill Maxwell, and Austrian photographer Mathias Kessler. This coming Sunday (June 30) from 5-8 pm, AIRIE is hosting a Summer Salon fundraiser at the private home of Valerie Grace Ricordi in Coconut Grove. Along with great refreshments, the event will include a performance by current AIRIE Fellow Ana Mendez, an audio installation by Gustavo Matamoros, and a dozen artworks created by past residents[.]
