Wind Challenge 2
Established in 1978, the Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is an annual juried competition that is committed to enriching and expanding people’s lives through art. Wind Challenge Exhibitions feature the work of exceptional artists living in the Philadelphia region. Meet the artists at the opening reception Friday, April 5, from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Challenge 2 will include the work of Michelle Angela Ortiz, Evan Dawson, and Rebecca Gilbert.
The Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is made possible with thanks to generous support from the Wind Foundation and Fleisher members.
Since its inception, the series has introduced regional contemporary art from over three hundred artists to a broad audience and has helped emerging artists advance their professional careers. Past Wind Challenge artists include photographer Robert Asman and sculptor Syd Carpenter, both of whom were later awarded a Pew Fellowship in the Arts; beloved Fleisher teaching artist Charlotte Yudis; and brothers Billy and Stephen Dufala, winners of the 2009 West Prize. In 2011, a series of free-public programs led by the artists was introduced, designed to enhance the viewing experience for youth and adults.
