A Room of One's Own

Spark unveils the rhythms of life at several artists-in-residence programs, from the Marin Headlands to the San Francisco Bay.

Resident artists at the Headlands Center for the Arts explain why the program represents a rare opportunity for experimentation and interaction among the lucky few chosen to participate.

At the Creative Growth Art Center, the miracle of creative voices comes alive as artists with developmental, emotional and physical disabilities are given the tools and guidance to develop their talents.

Meanwhile, innovative and offbeat, Artship navigates the Bay Area searching for a new home.
