The Department of Visual and Performing Arts on the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus is happy to announce that our Fall 2017 Artist-In-Resident (AIR): Heloisa Escudero is here and working in the AIR studio CF 193A. Please stop by to visit, see her working, ask questions, participate in activities during this fall semester.

Heloisa Escudero grew up in So Paulo, Brazil, but relocated to the United States in 1987 where her interest in Fine Arts developed. She obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art and a Master of Fine Arts from the San Francisco Art Institute. She holds American, Italian and Brazilian citizenships. She is interested in conceptually based art that is both tactile and interactive. Her most recent art projects focus on art that emphasizes the participation of the viewer. In 2007 she moved to
Sweden where she worked as a full-time artist, creating four successful projects and exhibiting in Sweden as well as in Spain. During this time she built the first three BackPack Gallery Sculpture Units, starting the BackPack Gallery Project. In 2010, she relocated to New York City, where she collaborated with DJ Spooky (Paul D. Miller) in the project Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica. This collaboration was exhibited at the New York Photo Festival 2012. One of her BackPack Gallery exhibitions/performances was held at the popular urban park, The Highline. In the beginning of 2013 Heloisa set up her studio in Arlington, Virginia, where she is working on several different art projects. When Heloisa Escudero is not in her studio making art she is working at the Hirshhorn Museum as an Exhibit Specialist.

Escudero has been showing in the DC area, New York city and Boston on a regular basis and her recent solo exhibition is part of the lecture artist program at the NOVA College in Woodbridge, VA.

Location: The Artist-In-Resident studio CF 193A is on the ground floor of The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center on the west side of the Takoma Park/Silver Spring Campus. The arts center is located off Georgia Avenue at 930 King Street. Parking is available in the West Campus Garage, which is immediately behind the center. Additional parking is available in the East Campus Garage on Fenton Street with pedestrian access by a bridge and walking path.
