Docu-Short: The Fountainhead Residency
The Fountainhead Residency, founded by Dan Mikesell and Kathryn Quinlivan Mikesell, is a unique arts residency located in a house directly across the street from the Mikesell’s home in Morningside, a gated community in Miami.
In this piece, we learn about the residency from Kathryn and meet four resident artists who were in Miami when the piece was filmed. We also get an up-close-and-personal look at the Mikesell’s extensive art collection.
The piece was produced by Aaron Glickman.
