The first week of August Jeremy Emmendorfer, B.F.A. with an emphasis in Printmaking, participated in "Relevant" an artists-in-residence at the Kimball Art Center in Park City, Utah. During "Relevant" five students from around the country were matched up with established artists from around the country and mentored by them while making a piece of work to be featured in an exhibition during the Park City Kimball Arts Festival. The festival is Utah's original, longest running visual arts festival and attracts over 40,000 people from around the country.
The "Relevant" program is in its third year and Jeremy is the third Western Michigan University student to participate in the program. The Frostic School of Art at WMU is the only school that has been represented all three years of its operation.
The Kimball Art Center is a nonprofit organization originated in 1976 that hosts a variety of exhibitions ranging from national exhibitions of historical significance to shows featuring up and coming local artists. The Kimball is going through a transformation with a new design provided by award winning architect Bjarke Ingels.
