Lucy Fradkin and Arthur Simms: Intimate Worlds
The Holter Museum of Art’s Cultural Crossroads Artist –in-Residence program provides students with opportunities to investigate, interpret, and express ideas of feelings through visual art. Now in its tenth year, the program enables students and their teachers to interact with and learn from artists and exhibitions from global perspectives. Cultural Crossroads artists come to the Holter for a two –week teaching residency during an exhibition of their work. Just as artistic traditions vary from one culture to another, each of these artists has developed unique teaching methods so the actual structure of the workshops will vary according to the strengths, talents, and experiences of each artist. During the residency, students develop and practice skills in reading, writing, and oral communication as they explore ideas from their own and other cultures, pose and solve problems, make connections with other disciplines, and discover meaning. This program is designed to give students and their teachers the opportunity to look, learn, and create.
The Cultural Crossroads program is made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Montana Arts Council, the Montana Cultural Trust, and members of the Holter Museum of Art.
