STATEMENTS FROM PAST RESIDENT ARTISTS
"The DAG residency and exhibition in Room 100 made it possible for me to resolve a very personal art project that had been a few years in the making. I was able to complete a professional installation of my “Hot Pink Brick” project and draw dozens of new supporters simply by being present in an accessible, community friendly space.”
-William Paul Thomas, 2016 Artist in Residence
“My residency was an amazing experience. It enabled me to create a highly ambitious, large-scale project using completely different art materials than I normally use. Without the support and deadlines of the residency, the Spirit of Lolong exhibition might never have happened. I have gained tremendous confidence in my ability to make the kind of artwork I have dreamed about—it was truly a life-changing experience!”
-Maready Evergreen, 2015 Artist in Residence Program
“The work you see here represents a new level of exploration and maturity and the next chapter in my artistic practice. I could not have grown this much so quickly without the time and space that the residency allowed me.”
-Brianna Gribben, 2014 Artist in Residence Program (residency exhibit artist statement)
