Award-winning poet and playwright Dan O’Brien on campus for short course and talk, returns in April.
Artists@Grinnell hosted Brooklyn-based artist and technologist Alex Dodge for a two-week residency in early October. Dodge spent his residency creating new work and engaging in dialogue with students and faculty about his work and process. He led discussions over student lunches, gave a public talk, and exhibited works he completed during his residency in a pop-up exhibition.

Grinnell artist-in-residence and Detroit-native Scott Hocking photographs his struggling city and creates installations using materials left in the abandoned, crumbling environments he explores. In both exposing and enlivening the decay and deterioration, Hocking is reliant on the passage of time, and his regular visits to sites affords a record of the seasons and years his work endures. Sponsored by Artists@Grinnell.
Artists@Grinnell is the new artist-in-residence program, bringing established artists working in fine arts, music, theater, dance, creative writing, and cross-disciplinary practices to campus. As a means of modeling and developing creative thinking at all levels of teaching and learning, visiting artists each year will bring new work and creative processes to campus to inspire undergraduates, to mentor faculty and staff, and to build partnerships with alumni and the surrounding community.
