This program was started to bring artists working in all different mediums together and to create new collaborative works. With the goal of connecting a variety of art communities within the Twin Cities Metro area, the artists have been paired strategically to engage in collaborative art-making. The short 6-week work period culminates in a showcase to share the artists’ creative process with the community. Sarah Weiss and Ayumi Shafer (DanceBARN Collective) have been spearheading the installation of this program, which they plan to continue in the seasons to come.
