Since 2001, I-Park has hosted over 600 artists from around the world on this 450-acre site. The preserve serves as both an open-air and closed-studio laboratory/workshop for creative pursuits in a variety of fields. These include: visual arts, music composition/sound art, creative writing, moving image, architecture and landscape/garden/ecological design.
Each month, beginning in April and ending in November, seven artists, who have been selected by way of a highly competitive jury process, arrive at I-Park for a 4-week, fully-funded onsite residency to develop new projects or work on existing ones. Additionally, every 2 years, I-Park hosts an Environmental Art Exhibition preceded by a 3-week residency. For this year’s Environmental Art Program, 12 artists will create new works that respond to the landscape: sculptures, sound art and performance art.
A free public exhibition will be held on September 20, 2015.
The public is also invited for OPEN Studios on August 9th, 2015. Meet the artists-in-residence in their studios, view their works-in-progress and walk the grounds.
