"Between the River and Lagoon" is an art residency initiative to devoting several weeks over a two month period in rural Fort Pierce, Florida to building a comprehensive exhibition in drawing, photography, sculpture and video of life in central east coast Florida between 1920 and 1950.

This Kickstarter project will assist the residency's lodging of several weeks, providing the necessary time to develop working sketches, photograph historical locations, access county records, talk to local historians, and fulfill the rewards of the project supporters, all of which take time, and are the focus of the residency.

A temporary studio will be set up near the St. Lucie River and Indian River Lagoon with regular updates keeping you informed of the progress. It will certainly be an exciting time.
