VISITING ARTIST PROGRAM
Established in 2012, as a part of Garrison Art Center’s mission is to promote the creation, exhibition and enjoyment of art and to create new opportunities for artists, students and residents, the Visiting Artist and Community Engagement Program focuses on bringing artists from outside our local community adding even more diversity and enrichment to an already vibrant and active arts community. Artists are selected based on an established career in the field and on his/her experience as an educator and a commitment to community engagement.
