Lighthouse Immersive's Artists in Residence Program
Meet Kelsey Sewell
I am the lead Project Coordinator on Lighthouse Immersive’s Artist-in-Residence (AiR) Program across all North American venues. The AiR program is an additional immersive component to the artistic experience at Lighthouse Artscape venues presenting the Immersive Van Gogh, Immersive Klimt Revolution, and Frida: Immersive Dream exhibits. The program is designed to include and invigorate local arts and culture in each city, highlighting and promoting local artists alongside the globally celebrated artists presented by Lighthouse Immersive. The flexibility of the residency invites the artist to interpret each exhibit’s theme through their own local and personal lenses. The artists paint live at the exhibit and so it’s just incredible seeing attendees engage with artists and vice versa. I think it’s a great opportunity to put the spotlight on local arts communities and offers opportunities for artists to express themselves in a completely devoted way that isn’t always available to them. The AiR program presents artists with the chance to interact with hundreds of exhibit attendees daily, sharing their creative process, and selling their artwork at the retail space.
