FEELyourselfSEEING_graphicHistorically, a framed artwork has been the modus operandi or usual mode of experiencing art – primarily engaging the viewer’s sense of sight. Immersive art, where the viewer fully enters the piece – engaging other senses – has increased in prominence over the last two decades. “Art as Experience” seeks to engage immersive art and its predominant ideas through an installation piece, a lecture by the resident artist, and continued dialogues throughout the two week residency.

Support for this project is provided by in part by Houghton College and by the Arts Council of York County Small Grants Program, the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC, and the SC Arts Commission, which received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
