Thanks everyone who let us see their workspace in painting, textiles, glass, and wood! We had a great time visiting these beautiful studios and admiring the work. We’re beginning to get a sense of what it means to work as an artist. Here are a few snapshots from our studio visits.
The students will bring their in-progess ideas to S.A.W. on May 9th. There will be an introduction to the project and time to meet the students to talk with them about their individual projects. They are eager for ideas and feedback!
The Roundhouse Foundation and University of Oregon are collaborating to generate design ideas for a prototype mobile, live/work art studio for Sisters. The idea is to make creative space available in town on currently under used commercial or industrial locations as an investment in arts-based economic development.
University of Oregon architecture students are working this spring to envision the possibilities for such a prototype. Directed by Assistant Professor Erin Moore, the students are approaching the design problem in terms of wall enclosure, living and working spaces, construction sequencing, and moveability.
