Artist in Residence Program
“The Park is not an outdoor museum of sculpture placed statically in a landscape setting, but rather an ever-changing partnership between the artist and environment, as reflected in nearly every installation or performance.”
In 1993, just two years after Dorothy and Bob Riester founded the Art Park, they began the Artist-in-Residence program. Hundreds of nationally and internationally recognized artists have traveled to the Art Park to interpret and create works of art. For more than 20 years, this program has remained an integral part of the Art Park’s mission and daily operations. Today, much of the Art Park’s collection of on-site artwork represents the ideas and work of past Artists-in-Residence.
