Brickscape Artist Residency & Exhibition

October 10 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

RESIDENCY MISSION:

Brickscape is an artist residency and exhibition that  celebrates the history and culture of Charleston, WV and the surrounding area by inviting local and national artists to create immersive and interactive installation art in underutilized historical spaces. Our aim is to inspire conversations concerning the potential of underutilized spaces and the role the arts can play in community and economic development, all while providing unique & engaging experiences for all audiences. The program allows artists 5-weeks of focused, uninterrupted time to take risks and explore new ideas while exchanging feedback with other artists.

PROGRAM UPDATE

As you may have guessed, we are taking the virtual route this year. Instead of a site-specific residency in Charleston, WV artists will transform a space of their own.
 
As always, their installations will be inspired by the Kanawha Valley and will reflect the history and memories that surround us.
 
These 4 artists have either grown up in Charleston or are currently working in West Virginia. And while they may not be able to join us in person this year, they will complete this not-so-typical “residency” from their current home towns.
You will get a virtual look at these installations and the making of them from Kansas City (MO), Thomas (WV), Brooklyn (NY), and Rifle(CO)/ Charleston (WV).
