My Summer Residency!
This is the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin. I have been selected to be a resident artist here May through August!
I just love it. The museum sits right on the Fox River and is situated in downtown Green Bay, within walking distance to two breweries, a great coffee shop, and a fun antique shop.
This is Studio 210, the space that the resident artists have to work in. My space is in the middle. There are windows that look out to some pretty trees and once in a while a train passes through.
This is a piece I started my first day in the studio. It is made from facial pads and felt, stitched together. I am making a series of "tortes" with my Aveeno face wipes.
I will post more as I work in the studio! I am currently scheduled to be at the museum every Tuesday from 1 pm to 5pm and every Thursday from 4 pm to 8 pm. Once the semester ends at school, I will surely be spending more time in the Museum! Stop by and visit me if you can! Check out the Neville here for more information on their current exhibitions and hours of operation. Hope to see you there!
