2020 Art Omi: Artists Alumni Residency

From August 3 - 24, Art Omi invited twelve alumni of our Art Omi: Artists program to join us for a residency reimagined for these times. For some of these artists, this was the first excursion beyond their immediate surroundings since the onset of the pandemic in New York, in March. While the participants gamely maintained social distance throughout, spirits and the sense of community was high throughout the residency. We are thrilled to know that with careful planning, we can continue to offer crucial space and time to the artists even during these uncertain times.
