Residence Program, Wendover, UT
Center for Land Use Interpretation, Culver City, CA
The Center for Land Use Interpretation received a grant in support of CLUI’s Wendover Residence Program. The program enables artists to reside, create, and present work in one of the most dramatic settings in the country: the terminal flats of the Salt Lake Desert. Through an extended stay at the Center’s Residency Program, artists gain a better understanding of the beautiful landscape around them, and in turn, interpret that landscape through their own work. CLUI encourages residents to produce an original piece or documentation (photography, text, sketches, sculptures, film, etc.) of their residency experience for display at the Center’s Wendover exhibit hall. Since the program’s inception in 1997, over 100 artists have been hosted, including Victoria Sambunaris.
