Wing Young Huie is the 2019-2010 CARE Artist in Residence. He will lead the year long series, titled “what do you see?,” using photography to invite and encourage everyone to discover the stories and the connections that bring people together.
Landmark Center’s Community Artist Resident Engagement (CARE) programming mission is to build and strengthen community involvement, especially with under-represented communities, through direct public engagement with the process of art-making directed by a leading Twin Cities artist. All ages are encouraged to be involved.
The “what do you see?” series begins with two photography master classes led by Huie and held at Landmark Center on consecutive Saturdays: October 19 and October 26, 2019 from 10 a.m. to 1p.m. in Courtroom 317. The classes are free, and open to new, aspiring, novice, and seasoned photographers. Participants will be challenged with the notion that what we see, and often think, is distorted by assumptions and world-view. They will learn to look beyond their own view points to produce thought-provoking art work. The results of the master classes will be on display at a free public exhibition and reception on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 5 to 7 p.m.
The workshop series is free, but class size is limited to 25 participants and a reservation is required. Please call 651-292-1239 or email email@example.com to reserve your place or get more information.
In addition to the October 2019 classes and exhibition, the “what do you see?” series will include Huie’s signature “Chalk Talks,” held during the Saint Paul Winter Carnival; as well as other exhibits and artistic collaborations through 2020.
The CARE program is made possible by generous support from the Mardag Foundations, the F. R. Bigelow Foundation and the Nash Foundation.
