|Description:||New Southeast Asia Artists-in-Residency Forges Greater Understanding
Two young artists from Vietnam arrived at the Worcester Art Museum in late August to take part in a month-long, highly anticipated residency program that many expect will bring about meaningful connections between people and cultures.
Those who've worked long and hard for this groundbreaking collaboration between artists, governments, cultural agencies, and WAM hail it as a significant stride toward greater cultural understanding and support. As part of their activities in Worcester, the two young artistsone from the north and one from the southwill meet not only fellow artists and members of the Worcester community, but also Southeast Asian refugees and immigrants who came to Central Massachusetts after the Vietnam War.
During their residency at WAM, artists Nguyn Th Sn and Nguyn Kim T Lan will hold weekly, drop-in studio open houses for the public:
Sunday, September 2; Tuesday, September 11; Saturday, September 15; Wednesday, September 19, 12-2pm.
Thursday, September 20, 4-6pm.
The public is invited to visit the artists in their studios, to observe their work, and engage in conversation.
The Southeast Asia Artists-in-Residency Program is co-organized in partnership with the Indochina Arts Partnership and the Southeast Asian Coalition of Worcester, and is supported by the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
