Paul Sutinen Participates in Rauschenberg Residency

Paul Sutinen, director of art programs and department co-chair, is one of 30-plus leaders in the visual arts and other disciplines invited to participate in the inaugural Rauschenberg Residency in fall 2012.

Robert Rauschenberg's 20-acre estate on Captiva Island, Florida will be transformed into a creative center that welcomes leaders in the visual arts, music, dance, writing, and a variety of scholarship and disciplines from around the world to live, work and develop new work in residence on the property.

The pilot program perpetuates Rauschenberg's ability to inspire and impact the artists who follow in his footsteps, enabling creativity to develop out of community and interaction. Each of the 30-plus gifted artists invited to participate in the pilot brings with them a distinct artistic background and focus. The interplay of their solo and shared experiences during their stay at Captiva mirrors Robert Rauschenberg's career-long interest in collaborative creativity, and will promote the spirit of innovation and boundary-pushing for the participants. Moreover, the collective nature of an eclectic group made up of individual artists reflects similar themes and methods that intrigued Rauschenberg throughout his life, especially the mix of media, materials and techniques. The experience will be symbolic of his belief that art has the power to bring about change, whether on a global or philanthropic level — and even within the artistic community itself.

The pilot residencies will run from November 2012 through June 2013 in four-week blocks, and there will be follow-up one year later to ascertain how the residency impacted the participants' work.
