2018 Creative in Residence

The Center awarded the 2018 Creative in Residence to Jackson Hole Public Art who conceived of and produced the Pavilion Project designed by Carney Logan Burke Architects and built by multiple local builders.

This residency provides support and space to highlight an interdisciplinary large-scale creative endeavor which results in an impactful and inspiring end product. JH Public Art subsequently issued the call for artists and facilitated a blind selection process. Carney Logan Burke Architects’ Town Enclosure design was selected and JH Public Art oversaw the entire fabrication and installation of the project. The enclosure is a circular composition of timber panels anchored by a custom steel base, which offers both transparent and opaque views depending on one’s position and perspective.

Town Enclosure Pavilion is open to performing and visual artists, exhibits, classes, and spontaneous gatherings, free for use by artists and nonprofit organizations offering non-ticketed activities. To reserve Town Enclosure Pavilion, call Oona Doherty at Center for the Arts - 307-734-8956.


Town Enclosure exists as a sculptural object and as a backdrop for the various activities this community park supports but it is much more than a sculpture. Created from a circular composition of timber panels, The Pavilion and the space it creates are both transparent and opaque according to one’s position and perspective. The enclosure is only fully experienced via movement around and within the object. An intervention within The Center Park,Town Enclosure, is an armature for celebration of creative activity, performance, and discovery.
