Future Heirlooms

ArtWorks fifth and final artist in residency for 2023 is led by Sarah Rodriguez. During the program, the group meets twice a week to explore new techniques, create artwork based on the theme of future heirlooms, discuss the artwork, write artist statements, and engage with arts professionals. The group will focus on work that reflects artists as storytellers, considering concepts such as, what is an heirloom, and how our identity and interpersonal relationships manifest in the significance of an object. Using a variety of techniques, artists will create pieces that present their unique perspectives as they work through the questions above.

They will gain experience showcasing their finished pieces in an exhibition at the ArtWorks V² Gallery in the winter and have the opportunity to speak publicly about their work.

On view December 1, 2023 – January 12, 2024
