This year Art Omi in Ghent, New York commemorates 30 years with a slate of special events and conversations highlighting its legacy as a haven for the arts. Art Omi was founded in 1992, when 21 visual artists from 11 countries were invited to a month-long residency in a refurbished dairy farm. Since its founding, Art Omi’s residencies have expanded to include five distinct programs, serving architects, dancers, musicians, and writers, in addition to visual artists.

Ruth Adams, the Co-Executive Director of Art Omi, talks to Joe Donahue on WAMC's The Roundtable.
