Join the Queens Museum and ArtBuilt for a closing reception and display of final work with current artist in residence Eric Magnus and WHAT IS WILD.
Studio in the Park is a residency program developed by Queens Museum and ArtBuilt which provides an artist or artist collective use of a 150 square foot mobile studio space situated on the lawn between the Museum and the iconic Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park for four to six weeks. Eric Magnus is the current resident artist whose ongoing media art project WHAT IS WILD engages communities of park users in creating and sharing meaningful digital recordings of the nature found in this urban wilderness. The collected media recordings are combined into short video essays during sessions open to the public. The videos will be posted online but also turned into a variety of digital projection experiments. WHAT IS WILD will conclude on August 15, 2017.
