BC PODCASTS BRING YOU INTO THE ARTIST'S STUDIO

Galleries and museums are great ways to experience contemporary art. But viewers don't always get to experience the artist's take on what happens in their studios. For over twenty-five years, more than 600 artists have participated in the Bemis Center's international residency program. That's why we've added BC Podcasts. Beginning in 2007, BC Podcasts take you behind the scenes for interviews with our Artists-in-Residence and Visiting Artists. Each interview captures the creative process and brings it directly to you, no matter where you are.
