Logan Center Exhibitions presents All That Light: A Ten Year Retrospective of the Artists-in-Residence Program (2012–2022)

July 8–September 11, 2022

Over 30 artists’ works have been gathered by curator Tracie D. Hall to demonstrate the overall effect of the AIR program at APL/CSRPC. The exhibition will include a wide spectrum of alumni performances, panels, and multimedia pieces.

The summer of All That Light companion programming will begin on July 8 and play on the various connotations of light, including making things visible, illuminating or igniting, and something that is readily carried. We cordially encourage you to engage in online and live events that further examine the artistic practices and output of the participants in the residency program’s first 10 years.
