The Everglades has seasons: The dry winter season begins in October and ends in April. The hot, wet summer season also brings mosquitoes. A furnished apartment, large enough to provide studio space, is available in the Royal Palm area, near Park Headquarters, the Ernest Coe Visitor Center, the Anhinga Trail and approximately 15 minutes (by car) from the nearest towns of Florida City and Homestead.
Accepted residents will need to bring personal gear, food and supplies. The artist is expected to leave the accommodations neat and clean and to comply with all park regulations and standards governing park employees and visitors. The artist should be self-sufficient and expect to work closely with park staff and the local community to achieve program goals.
