How well an artist residency does its job is not measured by tickets sold or tourism generated. There is no economic impact index for the return on investment when you trust an artist to explore new creative ground.
At the Griffis Art Center we offer space for the private moments of creative daring when pen is put to paper, or brush to canvas … when the thought may be uncertain and the idea still fragile. We do not force the outcome of the artists, but prefer to yield to artistic and cultural exploration -
new encounters, new directions, curiosity, and imagination.
The Griffis Art Center allows itself to be shaped and transformed by this creative process.
