Artist residencies played a crucial role in establishing Artpark as a pioneering and influential arts organization and are key to our development. To raise awareness and funds for future residency programs, Artpark is launching a series of conversations with eight notable artists.

Hosted by Dr. Anthony Bannon and Artpark’s President, Sofya (Sonia) Clark, attendees will be able to engage with the artists live via Zoom.

Founded in 1974, Artpark soon became one of the leading locations for the land art movement, inviting hundreds of artists to build temporary works on site. The "Artpark Idea" was to create a place where visitors became active participants perceiving objects over time -- from shifting perspectives and in relationship to the architecture. A place where art, public, and site become inextricably intertwined.

Artistic creation at Artpark generated immediate social, historical, and ecological implications that artists embraced and incorporated into their processes. The result was art that belonged where it was and where the relationship between creator and receiver was dynamic and alive. How this idea influenced the artists then and what it may be now is in the center of our discussions with the artists and audience.

Artpark is grateful to Stanzi Vaubel and Indeterminacy Consulting Group for putting the idea forward for this series.

Internationally renowned artist Philip Burke has captured the hearts and minds of rock and roll fans, movie aficionados, sports enthusiasts, politicos, and the general public for over thirty years. Burke’s vivid colors, sparing brushstrokes, and sharp lines have set him apart from all other contemporary artists. His work has adorned the pages and covers of Time, Newsweek, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, GQ, Vogue, Sports Illustrated, The New York Times, The New York Observer, Slate, Talk, Rolling Stone, and countless other publications. For the past several seasons, Artpark patrons have experienced Burke painting live during select concert events.
