Since the 1990s, the Glen Arbor Arts Center has welcomed visiting artists who want to immerse themselves in their work. The GAAC’s Suzanne Wilson Artist-in-Residence program offers up to seven, creative practitioners a two-week respite from their daily lives in order to focus on a new idea that needs space and time to develop, to an on-going project that might be nearing conclusion.
The 2021 program begins in May. Each of the GAAC’s residents offers a conversational presentation at the end of their stay. The presentations begin at noon at the GAAC. They are free, and open to the public. On August 27 Susanna Lang talks about a new writing project. This work is a series of poems in response to the landscapes in which she finds herself; and the interdependency of humans and the natural world. The Illinois poet returns to these theme during her residency.
