New Artist Studio Changes
The de Young Museum’s successful Artist-in-Residence program is currently on hiatus to make room for the newly created Artist Fellows program, courtesy of The James Irvine Foundation’s Innovation Fund. The first class of Artist Fellows—Todd T. Brown, multidisciplinary artist; Kevin Epps, filmmaker; and Campo Santo theater, directed by Sean San José—are working on site to create original works that will premiere this fall at the de Young and throughout San Francisco. The Artist Fellows program is utilizing the Kimball Education Gallery space through September, allowing visitors to view the artistic process in action. Visitors will be able to participate in artist talks, observe works-in-progress during Open Studios on Friday Nights, and watch live screenings and performances. Special thanks to our collaborating partners Red Poppy Art House, the African American Art and Culture Complex, and Intersection for the Arts.
The Artist Fellows program is by invitation. The next class of Artist Fellows, for 2012, will be announced this winter. To read more about the Artist Fellows program please visit the website and blog.
The Artist-in-Residence Program will return in October with artist Glenda Joyce Hape, beginning on Wednesday, October 5, 2011.
