AASF: How can alternative systems impact traditional arts education?

Ox-Bow School of Art and Artists' Residency, School of the Future, and artist Daniel Bozhkov discuss what happens when you inject elements of alternative art school practices into established institutions? Moderated by Regine Basha.

Located in Saugatuck Michigan on 115 acres of pristine natural landscape, Ox-Bow has been uniting art and life for over 100 years. With year-round programs that cater to degree-seeking students, professional artists and those new to art-making, Ox-Bow is a protected place where creative processes break down, reform, and mature.

As much as Ox-Bow is a place, it is also an experience. Through its affiliation with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ox-Bow offers one and two-week courses for credit and non-credit for beginning, intermediate, and advanced students. During the summer and fall, residencies allow for much needed time and space for artists to delve deep into their work. It is the synthesis of this diverse range of studio practices, and the artists who come to engage with them, that offers the diversity of opinion, viewpoint, and discussion that makes the Ox-Bow experience so rich.

There are a variety of ways to engage in the program, from being a student, artist in residence, faculty member, visiting artist, or fellowship student. Whether you are there to learn, teach, or work in the studio, artists find that Ox-Bow invigorates them with fresh ideas to bring back to the studio.
