Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program

The Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program funds two working residencies for artists each academic year at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, in the fall and spring semesters. Artists working in the book arts (and other media, too, as long as the creative project can be thought of as book arts related) are encouraged to apply for this prestigious and competitive award. We accept applications from artists from all over the world.

Poet and artist Helen M. Salzberg established the Salzberg AIR Program in 2011. Income from this endowed fund enables artists working in the book arts to come to the Jaffe Center on a semester basis to work and teach at the center. While here, the artist will produce a creative project using JCBA studios and also teach a workshop for FAU students and the general public and mentor FAU students as his or her schedule allows. The Salzberg AIR Program gives our students the opportunity to work alongside highly talented and creative book artists.  

The next Salzberg Artist in Residence for which we will be accepting applications is Fall 2015. The residency period is for the Fall Semester, which runs mid August through early December. AIRs are not required to be at the Jaffe Center for Book Arts for the duration of the semester. However, we do require each resident to complete his or her creative project, teach the resident's workshop, and vacate the studios by the end of the semester. The Fall 2015 Salzberg AIR will receive a stipend of $3,000. A call for applications will be announced through the JCBA email announcement list, JCBA social media outlets, the Book Arts Discussion List, and the Letterpress Discussion List by April 30, 2015.
