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:
Evan Lewis (Artpark artist in 1987, 1989, 1991) has been an active artist/sculptor since 1978. Lewis’s interest in kinetic wind-powered art has led him to work primarily in metal. Equally important to his work is the incorporation of sound, which is produced through delicate wind-powered percussive components. In 1988, Lewis was commissioned to create his first large-scale wind/sound sculpture for Expo 88 in Brisbane, Australia. Numerous commissions have followed including site-specific works for universities, municipal institutions, and private collections. In 1995, several of Lewis’ sculptures were commissioned by Warner Bros. Entertainment for the major motion picture “Twister”.
