Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, the Alliance’s Atelier artists-in-residency studio has moved to the Winter Garden at the World Financial Center (220 Vesey Street). Step inside the new studio on Wednesday, December 19 from 12pm – 5pm, and see what’s been created in this year’s residency by our three Atelier artists: Andrea Burgay, Kyle James Dunn, and Joseph Parra. Each participant is a past Scholastic Art & Writing Awards winner, and follows in the footsteps of other alumni like Andy Warhol, Richard Avedon, John Baldessari, Cy Twombly, Mel Bochner, Tom Otterness, and Erik Madigan Heck (just to name a few!). These three artists represent some of the most promising emerging young artists around, and we feel very lucky to have them in our program.
The Atelier—and its amazing emerging artists—is back! Last year, we launched our first artists-in-residency program for Scholastic Award winners who had recently graduated from college, and it was a great success (check out a recap of it here). We are excited to be able to bring this program back with more talented alumni this fall!
The 2012 Atelier program, which runs from October 8 through December 28, will include for each participating artist: a monthly stipend, exhibition opportunities, career development workshops and an open workspace provided by Arts Brookfield at One New York Plaza, where passers-by can witness the artists creating new work.
This year’s Atelier Artists are:
Andrea Burgay – www.andreaburgay.com
Kyle James Dunn – www.kylejamesdunn.com
Joseph Parra – www.josephcparra.com
Be sure to stop by to see these artists at work on our open studio dates: November 7 and December 5 from 12:30pm – 5:30pm. Not in New York City? No problem! We’ll keep you updated with pictures, videos, and blog posts from the artists themselves. So, stay tuned!
