October 1-May31 | Kevin Snipes enjoys a nomadic life, constantly making art no matter where he is. Snipes visits ASLD to demonstrate his high-energy methods for ceramics and storytelling.
ASLD’s Visiting Artist Series (VAS) brings notable artists to Denver from across the world. These artists complement existing ongoing courses and workshops, diversify our programming to include new artistic perspectives and media, and broaden teaching practices to enrich and enliven our faculty.
The BIPOC Artist-in-Residence (BIPOC AiR) program is a new facet of the Visiting Artist Series, born of the recognition that ASLD can take an active role in fostering equity and supporting diversity in the arts community. Through this program, ASLD hosts a Visiting Artist who identifies as Black, Indigenous, and/or person of color for a 6-9 month long residency. The residency offers the artist access to dedicated studio space at ASLD; the opportunity to lead workshops, lectures, and community engagement programs; and culminates with a solo exhibition of work created throughout the residency. Each residency is tailored to the artist’s expertise and discipline. Selected artists are representative of the racial diversity within Denver and lead workshops specific to the themes and issues important to BIPOC communities.
