On the latest Art Talks, host Shari Zollinger travels to Cisco, Utah for a conversation with two artists and creatives reshaping and reimagining the landscape. Visual artist Eileen Muza is a permanent resident of Cisco. Antonina Clarke is the current artist in residence with Cisco-based nonprofit, Home of the Brave. We hear about the artists’ backgrounds in craft, the risks and rewards of carving their own unique paths, and protesting for national change in rural Utah. Tune in.
About Home of the Brave:
Home of the Brave is an artist-in-residence program based in Cisco, Utah. Reimagined by visual artist Eileen Muza, the former ghost town is now a vibrant and evolving space where artists of any medium, means, or self-identification, can immerse themselves and create freely amidst the beauty and solitude of the high desert.
Home of the Brave offers two residency programs per year, one in spring and one in fall. Each residency is one month in duration, and artists are provided a live/work space and $500 stipend. Applications are due July 1st for the Fall 2020 residency (beginning Sept 1st). For more information, or to apply to the program, check out www.eileenmuza.org
