BOFFO Residency
Fire Island

BOFFO RESIDENCY FIRE ISLAND is an annual summer artist residency program created to nurture the creative spirit of artists and enrich the Fire Island Pines community while adding new and diverse perspectives to the cultural heritage.

Each summer artists are invited to stay for one to four weeks residencies to create a body of work that engages and reflects upon the community and LGBTQ culture. At the end of each residency, the artist is invited to share their work through an exhibition, installation, performance, reading, screening, or other forms of engagement. Additionally, artists co-curate public programs that further engage the community. Since 2012, the BOFFO Residency has supported over 90 artists and enriched Fire Island with hundreds of free artistic events and programs.
