SUPPORTING FIRE ISLAND
ARTIST RESIDENCY

Create with Pride. In celebration of Pride Month, ​we're supporting Fire Island Artist Residency.

WHAT IS FIRE ISLAND ARTIST RESIDENCY?

 

Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR) is an organization founded in 2011 which brings LGBTQIA+ identifying emerging visual artists and poets to Fire Island, a place long-steeped in LGBTQIA+ culture, to create, commune, and contribute to the location's rich artistic history.

Each summer, FIAR provides free live/work space to artists and poets who work, socialize, and immerse themselves in the Fire Island community for four weeks, during which time they are visited by a handful of figures from the visual art and writing communities.

FIAR hopes to bring new creative perspectives and prestigious art professionals together in this extraordinary location to foster the creation—and preservation— of queer art-making in contemporary art.

OUR ACTION

 

In celebration of Pride Month, we are donating 100% of net proceeds from our online store to the Fire Island Artist Residency from June 15th - June 30th. FIAR welcomes emerging LGBTQIA+ artists and creatives to the community of Cherry Grove, New York each summer. With your help, this donation will provide funding to support the residency and foster the creation—and preservation— of queer art-making in contemporary art.
