Our exhibition programming is open to all art forms, but with a strong emphasis on installation and performance art. Resident Artists from across the country spend two-week residencies in Wichita to complete an installation of their work and act as catalysts with fresh ideas and dialogue. Local artists and writers, student groups and community members access the resident artist’s creative process and respond with new work through exhibitions, essays and/or events. Discussion sessions, artist talks, potlucks and exhibitions foster further creative explorations.
James Marshall, Riverfest Artist in Residence 2017
Harvester Arts continued its partnership with Wichita Festivals by bringing James Marshall, aka Dalek, back to Wichita. James works internationally in a variety of capacities: street artist/muralist, painter, product-designer for Nike and Hurley, to name a few. James transformed the riverbank with his signature bold color-gradient style to create public-use furniture for the festival, a signature DJ booth, and Space Monkey installation.
