2023 Studio Residency Program

Allapattah’s first bi-monthly, and the only artist-led artist-in-residence program. Founded and designed by Miami native, multi-dimensional installation artist Haiiileen, located at her hyper-colorful rainbow-inspired home/studio. We will choose 6 Miami-based artists for the first year to participate in this program. A review panel will choose each selected artist. We have the opportunity to provide a work-live space for artists outside their usual environments while providing them with a mentorship program with some of the top professionals in four out of seven of our pillars fields. A group of professionals will offer resident artists mentorship and access to Miami art organizations that will allow the artist time to reflect, research, and produce a series of works.

Rainbow Oasiiis is located in Allapatha, fl, and  is centrally located near : 

  • Espacio 23 
  • Superblue 
  • Rubell museum

Due to the high demand: will have our first year as a Miami-based artist only!
