The Center is excited to announce the creation of an exciting initiative titled, Campus Creative in Residence. This residency opportunity will provide support and space for guests to work at The Center along with the artistic community that will highlight an interdisciplinary process and result in an impactful and inspiring end product. Selection for the Creative in Residence opportunity is by invitation from The Center's Creative in Residence committee consisting of Center Board members, community members and Center staff. Our first Creative in Residence program, "Observatories" will exhibit throughout the summer of 2017 with it's culmination occurring during the solar eclipse on August 21st. We are pleased to be working with curator team, Matthew Day Jackson, Camille Obering and Andy Kincaid.

Show Title: Observatories
Time: Summer 2017
Presented by: Matthew Day Jackson, Camille Obering, Andy Kincaid
Location: Center for the Arts Park, Theater Lobby, and greater Jackson Hole
Creatives in Residence, Matthew Day Jackson, Camille Obering and Andy Kincaid, present "Observatories" an exhibition of sculpture, video and performance art activating The Center and greater Jackson Hole throughout summer 2017. Using the eclipse as a metaphor, the team aims to illuminate aspects of Jackson Hole as representative as "the last of the old west". The constituent forms and images which create the illusion of the "West" often obfuscate that which they purport to represent. "Observatories" will offer viewers new ways of interpreting the past and present from which to consider the future of this community and its context.
Glen Kaino's sculpture "Hollow Earth" is one of the pieces that will make up the array of installations in The Center Park this summer as part of "Observatories".
