Artist in Residence Program
Learn more about our current Artist in Residence, Rachel Davis! Rachel will be using natural objects, such as leaves, pine cones, sea sponges, antlers, moss covered bark and shells to get us thinking about texture. She will then invite us to create an experimental monoprint that translates the tactile experience into a visual art experience. Create a print for yourself, or make one to leave for an accumulative print installation that will grow over the course of the week. This drop-in activity will take place in the Daniel F. and Ada L. Rice Art studio each day from 10:30 to 12:00 and 1:00 to 3:00.
Previously, our Artist-in-Residence was Suzanne Sebold. Suzanne is a visual artist based in Chicago. Her work is influenced language, culture, and society.
