Open studio on Saturday for Los Angeles artists
McCOOK, Neb. — Two visiting artists-in-residence from California will display their work at an open house on Saturday, Nov. 19, 12-4 p.m. at the Morrison Building, 301 Norris Avenue, third floor.
Contemporary artists Daniel Paul Schubert and Thomas Linder are based in Los Angeles. Schubert grew up in California and Linder, in Minnesota.
The artists have been staying in McCook through a partnership established with Maple St. Construct in Omaha, Neb., and funded in part by a grant to Maple St. Construct from Graff Charitable Foundation and coordinated by McCook Arts Council. McCook artist Lucas Kotschwar is the coordinator of the project for McCook Arts Council.
Maple St. Construct has been coordinating exchanges between artists based in the Midwest and Los Angeles for the past five years.
The artists created new work in previously vacant spaces on the third floor of the Morrison Building.
Their visit is to test the concept of artists-in-residence and so far it’s been very successful, said Chad Graff. “It’s given us ideas for developing an artists-in-residence program in McCook,” he said.
Browns Shoe Fit Co. is located on the street level of the Morrison Building.
