Bunnell Street Arts Center welcomes Swedish muralist, Dano (Daniel Wilhelmsson), through the ongoing, international artist in residence exchange in partnership with Skovde Museum from June 2-16. Join Dano for a potluck bonfire and artist talk on June 4, 6 pm at Bishops Beach.
Dano is a cultural organizer of concerts, murals, art exhibits and international street art festivals. This residency is possible with support from Alaska Community Foundation Irma Scavenius Fund for International Understanding.
“I grew up getting inspiration from comics and later graffiti before traditional art found its way to me. I use whatever materials are available, and I rather paint on an old piece of wood than on a canvas. But for me art is more than the paint I put on a wall or plywood, it can be present in everything we do.” – DANO (Daniel Wilhelmsson)
This program is made possible with funding by Rasmuson Foundation through the Harper Arts Touring Fund administered by the Alaska State Council on the Arts. 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 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.
