Mickalene Thomas, Afro Muse, 2014.
In the summer of 2011, co-founders Chris Bogia and Evan J. Garza organized the inaugural summer program of the Fire Island Artist Residency (FIAR) with support from The Long Island GLBT Services Network, the Knapp-Swezey Foundation, Visual AIDS, and the generosity of Percy Steinhart, Paul Underwood, Rod Sayegh, and individual donors. FIAR was founded to provide free live/work space for practicing and emerging queer contemporary artists while immersed in the decades-old GLBT community of Fire Island.
The proceeds from the sale of this edition help underwrite the operating costs of FIAR's annual summer program and directly support the artists and community they serve each year.
