FRIENDS OF THE PORKIES permanent art collection is now being exhibited at the DAP Art Studios - 2nd floor.
The Downtown Art Place is exhibiting the ART OF THE PORKIES. This is a permanent collection of the Friends of the Porkies Artists in Residence Program.
The Artist-in-Residence Program offers writers, composers, and all visual and performing artists an opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the park and to express it through their art form. Each year, a number of artists are selected for residencies lasting a minimum of two weeks. During their residency, artists will be asked to share their experiences with visitors through public demonstrations or talks. The artists are required to contribute an art piece representative of their stay. The donated pieces become part of a permanent collection of the Friends of the Porkies.
