Bergstrom visited the Island for the first time when exhibiting at TPP last June 2012 his solo show “Imperfect Pearl”. His works were very well received and praised by local critics and collectors as well and TPP decided to award the first pilot residency program stay.
The artist in residency will receive a one month stay (August 1-30) in a rented 2 room house ($750), airfare ($500), personal expenses ($450) and art materials ($300). One of our sponsors has provided us with the money upfront which will be repaid with one of the created works of the artist while in his residency in Puerto Rico.
We are very excited to have such a talented artist as our first resident and we expect him to have the greatest time. We will post photos on the residency program page in our blog throughout his stay.
