Signal Fire, “Wide Open Studio” Artist Residency Info Session
Ryan Pierce, a co-director of Signal Fire will be visiting our campus. Signal Fire is a non-profit based in Portland, that provides opportunities for artists and creative agitators to engage with our remaining wildlands.
He is going to give a slide presentation on their “Wide Open Studios” artist residency scheduled this summer.
Wide Open Studios is Signal Fire’s arts and ecology field institute, making our innovative wilderness excursions available to college students, emerging artists, or anyone seeking an immersive, hands-on, and transformative arts education. These trips invite students to explore their studio practice in dynamic wilderness locations, amidst an atmosphere of friendship and critical thinking. Our curriculum is centered on the natural and cultural histories of the sites we visit, and the possibilities of making art in— and in response to— wild places. Individual and collaborative projects invite students to see the wild as a place of wonder, empowerment, action and connection.
Please join us! Hope to see you there.
