Wind Challenge 1

Established in 1978, the Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is an annual juried competition committed to enriching and expanding people’s lives through art.

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.

Challenge 1 will include the work of Victoria Ahmadizadeh Melendez, Miguel Antonio Horn, and Kevin B. Huang.

The opening reception will take place on Friday, October 15 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Please keep in mind that our galleries can only accommodate 20 people at a time and we will ask you to limit your time in the spaces. Our Sanctuary space will also be open to allow for physical distancing.

Join us for the Wind Challenge Artist Exchange on Friday, October 22nd from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for a conversation with the artists. In this Exchange, the artists lead by asking each other questions and sharing insights into their creative process. For more information, contact gsilva@fleisher.org.

The Wind Challenge Exhibition Series is made possible thanks to generous support from the Wind Foundation and Fleisher members.

Please bring proof of vaccination to keep you and our creative community safe while visiting our buildings.
