As we practice social distancing and look for engaging ways to share art with you, Artpace a virtual studio visit series as part of our Artpace at Home initiative. During the studio visits, you’ll get a glimpse into the artists’ studios, their works in progress, and learn more about their studio practices.
Our next studio visit will be with Spring 2020 International Artist-in-Resident Daniel Ramos. In 2019, Ramos produced an artist book entitled The Land of Illustrious Men. His exhibition at Artpace, of the same name, is his 2019 book writ large and in three-dimensions wherein viewers can surround themselves with Ramos’s own experiences, memories, and family.
