2014 Emerging Artist Residency

This resulted in the most exciting work that I have ever made. With the largest amount of attention I have ever received. It has been one of the best experiences of both my life and my career as an emerging artist.
- James Sprang, Artist in Residence 2014

Meet The Residents

Andrea Arrubla

I find that in order to follow my philosophy of sincerity in art I cannot tie myself to just one medium. Although I begin with a personal or anecdotal idea, I find that the work often transcends the intimate and enters various themes that are beginning to emerge in our global converstaions such as immigration, language, and the democratization and accessibility of art.

Her current project is Architecture of an Atom, a trans-media story and gesammtkunstwerk made up a feature film, a series of drawn/painted/printed images (a comic book box set) and the short film and performance 'infinite whistle' series.
