Iceland 2015 : Artists in Residence
Congratulations to our 2015 artists in residence!
After a long deliberation and many incredible applicants, we've put together two exceptional teams for next year's Light Grey Art Lab Iceland 2015 Residency Program.
In the summer of 2015, two diverse teams will join us as our 2015 artists in residence. Our July 25 - 30th group welcomes a team of illustrators, concept artists and painters from different areas of the United States, Canada, and Austria. Our July 31 - August 5th group welcomes a team of animators, directors, illustrators, cartoonists and book makers and from different areas of the United States, Canada, France and the United Kingdom. We will be traveling through Southern Iceland to visit some of the most secluded, wild, and sublime locations in the world. Our day excursions will include visits to some of the creaking glacial feet, boiling mud pots, hidden waterfalls, haunted hillsides, sleeping volcanos, basalt caves, and more. Equipped with our sketchbooks, cameras, and hiking gear, we set out on an adventure of a lifetime to explore, document, collaborate-- we hope to create an atmosphere of learning, open exchange, and dialogue.
