Highlights from Previous Residency
Artist in Residency Showcase & Sparking Creativity Documentary
On November 8, 2021, ACWB hosted a virtual Artist in Residency showcase. Heather Morigeau (Fall 2021 resident artist) was joined by Carla White (Fall 2020 resident artist) for a live-stream Q&A and conversation about their experiences in the Artist in Residency program. Available on YouTube.
Following the live-stream Q&A session, ACWB shared the premiere of Sparking Creativity, a short documentary filmed by M’Guphynn Media about tragedy and the healing power of art, featuring Carla White during her residence.
