Libby Meyer, Artist in Residence, April 2024

Bunnell Street Arts Center welcomes composer Libby Meyer from April 6 – 18, 2024. Libby will give an artist talk on April 12 at 6pm. She will host a composing workshop on April 13, 5-7pm.

“The relationships between people and their landscape create a foundation for my music and informs much of my work in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I live in a small community in the Keweenaw Peninsula surrounded by Lake Superior, and I see a strong symbiosis with the Kenai Peninsula. I would be very interested in working with the local community to inform a new composition for solo guitar, celebrating the connection between a community and the landscape it stewards. I am interested in meeting with the residents and sharing stories from members of the community about their relationship with the landscape, their community, and the natural world.”

Libby will use her time at Bunnell to conduct research for new music composition for solo guitar.

Alaska AIR Artist Talks & Dinner: Friday, April 12 at 6 pm – Artists Libby Meyer, Andrew O’Connor and D. Chase Angier each share a 20-minute slidetalk about their work. Talks followed by soup, salad and bread with community members.

Composing Workshop with Libby Meyer: Saturday, April 13 from 5-7 pm – Open to all about composing, creativity and the power of listening. Suggested donation $15. Register by emailing info@bunnellarts.org or calling (907) 235 – 2662.
