Welcoming Brittany Watkins as the next Visiting Artist in Residence

Tuesday Nov 17th, 2020

Erie Arts & Culture will welcome Brittany Watkins as our next visiting artist in residence. Brittany will work in Erie from November 30 until December 20.

In early 2020, Erie Arts & Culture launched a visiting artist residency program in collaboration with Long Road Projects. Through this program, Erie Arts & Culture and Long Road Projects provide contemporary artists with dedicated time and space to reflect, research, and create new bodies of work – outside of their usual environments. This program also creates opportunities for new perspectives and creative processes to be shared, which in turn positively impacts the cultural and creative landscape in Northwestern Pennsylvania.

This visiting artist residency program is made possible through the generous support of a privately funded grant from The Erie Community Foundation.

Friday Nov 13th, 2020

View the recording of our PRO Network presentation with Tom Ferraro.

In this workshop, artist Tom Ferraro discusses the development and techniques used by the Looking Glass Art Project, a program designed to engage community stakeholders in the creation of public art. Since 2012, Tom and co-founder or the Looking Glass Art Project, Ed Grout, have led over 20 community-driven public art projects throughout Northwest Pennsylvania. This workshop will provide a snapshot of how the Looking Glass Art Project has adapted their process, originally designed to engage seniors, to include diverse groups of community participants. Topics include lessons in Lifelong Learning, finding community partners, identifying big ideas, adapting to various community groups, working to the strength of your participants, the role of the professional artist in the production of public art. Tom compares and contrasts their processes using examples from a variety of past and current projects.
