The mission of the Marilyn Faison Artist Residency is to provide artists an opportunity to create in relative seclusion on Peaks Island, just off the coast of Portland, Maine.
Our goal is to introduce these nationally recognized artists to a wide and diverse population through lectures and workshops during their stay on Peaks Island.
We had an inspiring summer with over 16 residents. This year's diverse group of artists and their unique cultural perspectives provided programming for both children and adults. Our artists provide a rich cultural array of interests and expertise bringing their particular passion directly to audience members in our community...a rare opportunity indeed.
