Hill House Current and Past Artist News

Another month has come and gone, Hatchies. How did that happen? Spring has (sort of) sprung in these parts and we're feeling excited about the magic and madness that's happening all around us.  


Current/Future Artist News

This week we say goodbye to Sioux Trujillo, who—along with her son Shaun—stayed for two weeks at the Hill House. Sioux was the 2009 Kresge Artist Fellowship recipient and has worked in the Detroit art community for 20 years as an artists, and an administrator for 10+ years. She was one of the founding directors for community+public arts: DETROIT, an initiative that brings community-driven public art projects to six underserved Detroit neighborhoods. Sioux is also the recipient of the 2012 Whole Thinking leadership development retreat. This retreat draws upon practices such as deepening connection the land, relationship building, working with and across difference, creativity, story, dialogue, and awareness practice. We were glad to have her downstate energy up north for a little while. 

We get to say 'hello' this week too, to artist-in-residence Latham Zearfoss. Latham is an artist and cultural producer living and working in Chicago. His artwork often centers on reclaiming historical and mythological texts, and revising them to incorporate radical notions of love and sex, possibility and probability. Latham will be in the Hill House for the next few weeks as we transition from winter to spring. We wish him squishy walks and rainy inspiration!
