COLLIDER artist-in-residence program

COLLIDER, the South Central Regional Library’s artist-in-residence program, connects the public with art and the people who create it. Special studio space within the Library allows artists to create on-site. Patrons are encouraged to drop in, interact, and learn about different artistic processes, and participate in special workshops for the public.

Generous funding from Councilwoman Madonna Flood makes the COLLIDER Artist-In-Residence program possible.

Our upcoming 2019 COLLIDER artists are:

May artist Chelsea Harris, painter

MAY 2019
Chelsea Harris - Painter

Chelsea Harris is a practicing artist operating out of Louisville, Kentucky, and Grand Rapids, Michigan (U.S.). A recent graduate from Kendall College of Art and Design, she earned her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts as a Painting major with a Printmaking minor. Whether in a visual format or through creative nonfiction writing, she tends to explore personal connection and relationships. Critical theories of Aesthetics and metaphysics inform her academic and personal work to weave a dialogue between tradition, religion, rebellion, and reinvention.

Check out Chelsea's COLLIDER programs in May, and visit with her during LFPL's How-To Festival on Saturday, May 11.

June artist Ryan Case, painter

JUNE 2019
Ryan Case - Painter

Ryan Case is a stay-at-home/homeschooling dad of two amazing children. He spends the night hours creating creatures of all sorts. Through mystic rites and forbidden incantations, he calls upon forces unknown and unseen through his brushes and traps their images on canvas.

Learn from Ryan during his COLLIDER workshops in June.
