Tom Hill Artist Residency, Nov. 5-10
San Francisco-based sculptor Tom Hill’s memorable Birds in Art artworks feature character-filled and expressive subjects depicted in wire.
During his residency, Tom works with area students to create distinct sculptures featuring produce as body-form bases and the foundation for their mixed- media artworks.
Inspired by the playful and unlimited mix-and-match design potential of Mr. Potato Head, Tom demonstrates how everyday items, even ephemeral ones, are compelling sources of inspiration ripe for incorporation into art making.
See the students’ produce-based creations via photographs on view following the residency. Tom also leads an interactive Art 101 program and a two-day wire sculpting workshop for teens and adults.
