Long Road Projects (LRP), founded by Aaron Levi Garvey and Stevie Covart Garvey, is a 501c3 non-profit artist residency and edition publishing program. Residency programs invite artists to take up residence in a specific city, outsite of their regular home and studio environments. Traditionally, these programs provide artists with time for reflection, research, exhibition, and the ability to produce new bodies of work. By participating in these programs, artists are able to immerse themselves in a new environment, be influenced/inspired by (and influence/inspire) the people they meet, and engage with communities.
Since its inception in December 2015, LRP has hosted four artists in Jacksonville, Lala Abaddon (New York, July-August 2016), Gamaliel Rodriguez (Puerto Rico, October 2016), Joshua Short (California, December 2016), and Tameka Norris (Iowa, December 2016). While in residence, each artists works with Jacksonville's resources and creative community to conceive a limited edition project. Upon their completion, each edition is made available for sale through LPR's website.
