Art About Place Archive is a bi-weekly series that showcases the FOR-SITE Foundation exhibitions to date. In the spirit of joining together to share our common humanity, we hope these unique videos will help buoy your spirits and offer you creative reprieve during this time.
While our exhibitions have historically been site-specific, art about place has always been intended to transcend location, to include virtual place, socio-economic, geographic and internal place. With this in mind, we share these beautiful stories to help foster an inspired and generative state regardless of where you are.
Our wish is that the storytelling here will serve to illuminate both our personal histories and our collective values. Please enjoy!
