Community Artist Resident Engagement

Wing

Wing Young Huie is the 2019-2020 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 began with a two day photography master class led by Young Huie and held at Landmark Center on consecutive Saturdays. Coming up next:

January 9, a new “what do you see?” exhibit with photographs by Young Huie. Opening reception, 5-7 pm.

January 25, Young Huie’s signature ‘Chalk Talks’ will be held during the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, 12 -2 pm in Rice Park.

February 22 & 29 a two day master class for high schoolers, led by Young Huie. 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, March 10, 2020, 5 – 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 jbrooks@landmarkcenter.com to reserve your place or get more information.

The CARE program is made possible by generous support from the Mardag Foundations, the F. R. Bigelow Foundation and the Nash Foundation.
