Description:
Conversations exploring the past, present & future of Artpark's visual arts legacy

Artist residencies played a crucial role in establishing Artpark as a pioneering and influential arts organization and are key to our development. To raise awareness and funds for future residency programs, Artpark is launching a series of conversations with eight notable artists.

Hosted by Dr. Anthony Bannon and Artpark’s President, Sonia Clark, attendees will be able to engage with the artists live via Zoom.

Guest Speaker:
Owen Morrel (Artpark artist in 1980) has been creating prominent site-specific sculpture for over 40 years. He started in the New York art scene during which time he created several major public installations and had work exhibited in galleries and museums across the U.S. and Europe. Since then he has worked in the public sphere, where his large works have been commissioned by colleges and universities, state and city governments and community groups all across the world. His public sculptures include a 110-foot observation deck over the Niagara River (Artpark’s “Omega”), and more. He has been featured in documentaries, books, newspapers and magazines.
