RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT: CONCERNING BELONGING

NSU Art Museum launched Research and Development, a series of artist residencies that provide artists with essential time and resources to further their work and apply their creativity to social issues. In its inaugural program, the museum invited South Florida artists Natasha Lopez De Victoria, Rick Ulysse, Tom Scicluna, Agustina Woodgate, and Antonia Wright, to use the Museumís second floor gallery as studios and develop new projects addressing issues of homelessness and belonging. Participating artists also led art workshops dealing with homelessness and belonging with the Broward Partnership, which operates the Central Homeless Assistance Center, a local shelter for the homeless.
