Artist-In-Residence Workshop with Dustin Hunt
June 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
During their residency, muralist Dustin Hunt plans to create a series of three to five eleven-by-seventeen-inch graphite portrait studies of residents and seasonal workers. Incorporating elements of Mackinac Island, Hunt will make the overall body of work people-centric and site-specific. These portrait studies will also contain design elements inspired by conversations with the subjects about what has shaped them. In this way, personal narratives drive the composition and become mediums for storytelling. As with most projects, Hunt will seek out narratives that are often overlooked, perhaps misunderstood, yet worthy of highlighting, that may go unnoticed otherwise.
During the workshop, Hunt will:
-Present select previous people-centric, community-centered mural projects
-Discuss ways that relationships have been built in previous communities visited
-Highlight ways Hunt incorporates said relationships into public art projects
-Unveil the three to five graphite portrait studies while sharing about process
-Allow time for questions
This is a free workshop located in the Station 256 Conference Room, located above the Mackinac Island State Park Visitor’s Center.
