Artist-in-Residence John Hitchcock
Award-winning Wisconsin artist John Hitchcock joins us as artist-in-residence the week of July 28–August 2. From 9 a.m.–3 p.m. each day, Hitchcock demonstrates his work and technique while chatting with visitors. Hitchcock uses the print medium with its long history of social and political commentary to explore relationships of community, land, and culture. Hitchcock’s works on paper and multimedia installation consist of prints and moving image that mediates the trauma of war and the fragility of life. Images of U.S. military weaponry are combined with mythological hybrid creatures from the Wichita Mountains of western Oklahoma to explore notions of assimilation and control.
