Salzberg Artist in Residence Program at JCBA South Florida

The Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University Libraries in Boca Raton, Florida, is once again accepting applications for the Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence Program. It’s a fine opportunity. The 2019/2020 Salzberg Resident receives these rewards:

•  An office at JCBA.
•  Full use of JCBA studios and equipment.
•  Access to office and studios during open hours of the Wimberly Library.
•  Stipend of $8,000.

In exchange, the Salzberg Resident will complete a creative project by August 6, 2020, teach a workshop at JCBA, and mentor students as his or her time allows. Although the Salzberg Residency is for a full academic year, the resident need only spend a minimum of 30 days in residence at JCBA throughout the course of that year. (You may, of course, spend the entire year here or as much of that year as you’d like, but 30 days is the minimum––the residency is designed with built in flexibility so artists with responsibilities outside the residency may still take advantage of its rewards.)

The Salzberg Residency is focused on the Book Arts, but in our Creative Project and Workshop guidelines, you will see that JCBA has a very broad interpretation of the Book, and so we encourage artists of all sorts to apply. Find application information, read more about the residency, and meet all of our past Salzberg Residents, including current Salzberg Resident Merike Van Zanten, here at our website:


The list of past residents is an impressive one: Dorothy Simpson Krause (2012), Lorna Ruth Galloway (2012), Paula Marie Gourley (2013), Tom Virgin (2013), Julia Arredondo (2014), Stephanie Wolff (2015), Brooke Frank (2016), Ingrid Schindall (2017), and Marie Marcano (2018). Their disciplines have ranged from letterpress and screen printing to fine binding, calligraphy, zines, painting, and this year, with Merike’s residency, eco printing.

The deadline for receipt of applications is 4 PM on Monday August 2, 2019.

  1. I think it’s cheap, it’s fun to watch, but you can try it before I bought it at mokoPCB.
