As multi-dimensional members of the art ecosystem, artists Eric Fischl of The Church, Stephen Petronio of The Petronio Residency Center and Emily Simoness of SPACE on Ryder Farm, have all elaborated on or transformed their original artistic careers to include community building. What motivated these art innovators, who each created organizations to support other artists, to expand their work to include social issues and community? What were the most significant challenges in envisioning and building their actual physical spaces? How do they define community in the context of their projects? How do they consider equity issues within their programming?

Find out in a Zoom event on Sunday, January 24, at 8 p.m. when “Art As Ecosystem” returns to Guild Hall with the three artists speaking on their experience in a conversation moderated by Mary Jane Marcasiano.

“Art As Ecosystem” was launched in 2019 by Eric Fischl, Guild Hall and The Church with the goal of drawing together artists and arts advocates for a conversation examining the art ecosystem’s health, looking beyond the current focus on the art market. The event is free. Register at guildhall.org.
