The Duluth Art Institute presents a multi-tiered program this fall led by two nationally renowned artists: Sharon Louden and Wendy Red Star. The program is presented on the occasion of Louden’s book tour for her new publication, “The Artist as Culture Producer,” which features 40 artists including Red Star. As part of the program, Louden will lead an artist professional development workshop at the Duluth Art Institute’s Lincoln Park location (time TBA), concentrating on the ways that artists can expand their practices beyond their studios. The workshop is free but registration is required via www.duluthartinstitute.org/Events.
Louden holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from Yale University School of Art, and her work has been exhibited at the Tweed Museum of Art in Duluth as well as Carnegie Mellon University, Weisman Art Museum, National Gallery of Art, Birmingham Museum of Art, Weatherspoon Art Museum and the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, and more. Her work is held in major public and private collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, National Gallery of Art, Neuberger Museum of Art, Arkansas Arts Center, Yale University Art Gallery, Weatherspoon Art Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, among others. Her work has been written about in the New York Times, Art in America, Washington Post, ARTnews and elsewhere. Louden has taught for more than 25 years and is a Senior Critic at the New York Academy of Art in New York City, as well as a consultant for the Joan Mitchell Foundation. She has also contributed to the National Endowment for the Art's Creativity Connects campaign.
