Introducing our NEW Fellows 11.13.17
Please welcome SPACES 2017-2018 Fellows Madison Link and Thomas Reihart!
Earlier this year we launched a new Fellowship program for art students. These students are working side by side our Artist Coordinators Bruce Edwards (SWAP) and Karl Anderson (R&D). Through this experience we hope the students will learn more about working in an arts organization and be exposed to new ideas from practicing artists.
Here they are in their own words:
Madison Link, SWAP Fellow
My name is Madison Link and I am a sophomore, majoring in painting at the Cleveland Institute of Art. I plan to graduate in 2020. I received the SWAP fellowship and get the pleasure to work under Bruce Edwards. I've gotten to work with Heidi Neilson and help build parts of her dome. I hope I get to work with Michaels Rakowitz on his upcoming project "A Color Removed".
A favorite quote of mine is "As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed" by Vincent Van Gogh.
Thomas Reihart, R&D Fellow
Hi, I'm Tom Reihart. I'm a Cleveland native studying Sculpture and Expanded Media at the Cleveland Instituted of Art. I'm currently a junior and looking to graduate in the spring of 2019. After school I plan on having a studio practice and engaging myself in the art scene working towards a goal of mine, to someday open a gallery of my own. I'm very excited to have received the R&D fellowship and I'm really looking forward to working with Sara Black and Amber Ginsburg on the 7000 Marks project as well as all upcoming artists and projects. I'm just very thankful for this opportunity and to be a part of SPACES and to learn a lot from this experience.
