“The artists participating in the residency program are coming to make art as part of a community. It‘s a chance to come together, to share creative processes, and the meanings behind their materials and techniques. It is also a chance to experiment. Each artist brings something new to the community, and we all become part of the history of the new work artists create during their residencies.”
— Dr. Lara Evans (Cherokee Nation), IAIA Artist-in-Residence Program Director and IAIA Associate Dean
Announcing—I’ve been selected as an Artist in Residence for the month of February at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM. During my stay, I will be composing a new work for chorus and small handheld instruments to accompany a Patricia Michaels’ runway fashion show; the new work will be a musical score for her runway show. Also, I will continue composing Requiem For America, my large requiem project for 4 operatic soloists, s.a.t.b. chorus, Native American singers, Native American flute, full orchestra and choreography. If you are in the vicinity of Santa Fe, please stop by for a visit!
