Each project begins with a pointed set of ideas and perspectives. Over the span of public discourse and rigorous study, we work to deepen our understandings or to completely unseat them. Our artist-in-residence program begins with a primary artist with whom we develop a conceptual premise for a 3-4 mo. exhibition. We then work with extraordinary artists from different facets of design [mixed media, culinary, fashion, performance, ... ] to respond to the current body of work.
