About the Residency

The City of Pompano Beach Cultural Affairs Department relaunched its Artists in Residence (AiR) Program at the historic Bailey Contemporary Arts Center (BaCA) in October 2022. This is the second class of the newly relaunched program. The AiR Program provides artists with studio space to create new work, collaborate with fellow resident artists, and engage with the community. Annually, a distinguished panel of judges will select new artists for each class. This dynamic and diverse group of artists has been in residence for nine months.
