Bunnell Street Arts Center welcomes Catherine Meier, a McKnight Artist Fellow, through an Artist Residency program in partnership with the McKnight Foundation & the Artist Communities Alliance from September 23 – October 4. Artist talk & screening in-person at Bunnell Street Arts Center Saturday, October 1, 5:30PM. A virtual artist talk will be posted on Bunnell’s YouTube channel.
Catherine Meier creates drawings, animations, and large-scale installations of earth, sky, and horizon – of vast, open land and space. Her projects are large in scope and develop over several years of deep listening in specific locations — this experience forms the core of her artistic process. In recent years, Meier’s work has focused on the Sage Creek area of Badlands National Park in South Dakota, located on Lakota Homelands. Her project “Standing Witness, site: Sage Creek” was recognized through Creative Capitals’ “On our Radar”. She has held place-oriented residencies at Badlands National Park and Cedar Point Biological Station.
This program is made possible with support by The McKnight Foundation and the Artist Communities Alliance.
Bunnell Street Arts Center’s Artist in Residence (AIR) features Alaska, national and international artists for residencies of varying lengths, from one week to one month. The program has evolved with support from the National Performance Network, McKnight Foundation, Rasmuson Foundation, US Artists, Homer Foundation, ArtPlace America and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Today, it is primarily supported by private donors, foundation grants, and application fees.
Bunnell Street Arts Center’s mission is to spark artistic inquiry, innovation and equity to strengthen the physical, social and economic fabric of Alaska.
