The Artpark Idea Series: Subscription Package
450 S 4th St, Lewiston, NY 14092, USA
Artpark announces a special series of online conversations to explore Artpark’s visual arts legacy in a modern context. The Artpark Idea Series will feature eight notable artists connected to Artpark over six weekly sessions to be held via Zoom beginning on March 19, 2021. Hosted by Dr. Anthony Bannon and Artpark’s President, Sonia Clark, attendees will be able to engage with the artists live and proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the Artpark Live campaign.
Founded in 1974, Artpark soon became one of the leading locations for avant-garde art and the land art movement, inviting hundreds of artists to build temporary works on site. The intention was to create a place where visitors became active participants perceiving objects over time – from shifting perspectives and in relationship to the architecture. Art, public, and site became inextricably intertwined. Artistic creation at Artpark generated immediate social, historical, and ecological implications that artists embraced and incorporated into their processes. The “Artpark idea” is a philosophy that art “belongs where it is” where the relationship between creator and receiver is dynamic and alive.
The focus will be on the relationship between a place, its history, its people, and how we might develop our future together. Series Subscription includes:
