2021 AIR Open Studios: Shenny de Los Angeles
November 13, 2021|3:00 pm - 3:45 pm
BAX AIR Shenny de Los Angeles will share some of what she’s been working on since beginning her residency at BAX.
BAX AIR Open Studios are part of the (loose) progression of creation integral to the Artist in Residence program. The Artists in Residence pull back the curtains and raise the shades, opening access to a space of sharing where those present are invited to the interior spaces of artistic process and creative experimentation.
