From El Salvador, Cuba, and Israel, Simón Vega, Candelario, and Gil Yefman talk about their experiences as artists-in-residence at the Fountainhead Residency in Miami, Florida. Launched in 2008 by Kathryn and Dan Mikesell, Fountainhead is one of the local efforts to build a sustainable art scene in Miami. Our conversation takes place in the house and garden where the artists live and work.
