Alexis Kaminsky: Outcroppings (meditations on space, time and matter) {front gallery}
Down in the Grand Canyon, the guide said, “Place your hand on this seam.” I reached out to touch the rock wall. “Right there, there’s a gap of 20 million years.”

The year of big rains that washed away our roads and remapped the land around us.
Climate change and our human hubris. The earth will continue with or without us.

HARWOOD STORIES

SUZANNE SBARGE
SUZANNE SBARGE

Former Director of Harwood

When I started the building was primarily a studio center for artists with very little public programming. The only staff members were the Building Manager Marshall Kovitz and me, and we were both part-time. I worked to expand the reach of Harwood through lots more exhibitions, classes and events, and the Harwood Summer Arts Camp. I focused on community involvement and marketing, which transformed Harwood from a mostly quiet studio center into a public venue that was always buzzing with activity.

I am grateful to the Harwood for launching my career in arts administration over 20 years ago and for serving as the umbrella for 516 ARTS in our first year.
