Get Engaged with Creativity, History, Ecology, Community
Make it possible for poets and painters, composers and playwrights, sculptors and authors to work at the Hermitage Artist Retreat.
Because of support from friends like you, we are able to host more than 100 accomplished, mid-career artists each year in six-week residencies on our Manasota Key Gulf-front campus. These artists clear their schedules of other commitments and arrive at the Hermitage eager to escape daily life, to focus on their passion, and to produce the art of tomorrow.
Work created at the Hermitage is being performed at New York's Metropolitan Opera, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and at theaters and music halls across America and Europe; it is being exhibited at museums and galleries around the world.
