Artist in Residence
The Deering Estate has emerged as a thriving cultural art center, fulfilling an enduring dream of the late industrialist Charles Deering. Mr. Deering was an avid art collector, philanthropist and amateur artist, who sought to support artists and create a cultural haven at his South Miami home.
Charles Deering’s tradition and innovative spirit continues on the Estate today through the Artist Village, a place where South Florida’s natural and historic treasures are interpreted through the creative talents of visual, literary, and performing artists. Housed in a unique collection of buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Artist Village has become a cultural hub for exciting collaborative cultural arts programs.
