The State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs has awarded the Hermitage Artist Retreat a $29,591 grant, which will be directed to help fund the Hermitage’s community arts and cultural programs. The award-winning creators across all artistic disciplines who stay at the Hermitage provide free public programs that attract thousands of residents and tourists every year. These programs take place at the Hermitage and throughout our region in collaboration with leading arts, cultural, and educational institutions. This year, some will also take place via digital and online platforms.
According to Andy Sandberg, Artistic Director and CEO of the Hermitage, these cultural gatherings provide both residents and visitors the rare opportunity to interact with celebrated authors, musicians, poets, playwrights, visual artists, composers, and performers from across the globe. “The artists creating work at the Hermitage are shaping the artistic and cultural landscape of the future,” says Sandberg. “The Hermitage has been the birthplace and incubator for significant works that have gone on to leading theaters, museums, and concert halls around the world.” The Hermitage’s audiences get front-row seats to experience brilliant new works-in-progress and participate in conversations with accomplished artists at the top of their respective fields.
