Residency ART OMI 2013
Lenka Sturlova, Czech musician, was selected to be part of the prestige musical residency program at Art Omi in summer 2013.
Omi International Arts Center is a not-for-profit arts organization with residency programs for international visual artists, writers, translators, musicians, and dancers. Omi seeks to foster an environment of creative exploration and exchange, professional opportunity and exposure, and a stylistically and culturally diverse community for creative artists from around the world. Through our programs and resulting public events – including our Residency Programs, The Fields Sculpture Park, Architecture Omi, and Education Omi – Omi contributes to the vibrant culture of the entire Northeast region of the United States.
Since its founding, Omi has been guided by the principle that artistic expression transcends economic, political, and cultural boundaries. To date, Omi has hosted more than 1,800 artists from over 100 countries. By inviting a unique and varied mix of artists, writers, musicians and dancers from all over the world to create a diverse, positive working community, Omi transforms this guiding vision into an exciting reality.
Every summer, Music Omi invites approximately a dozen musicians — composers and performers from around the globe — to come together for two and a half weeks in a unique collaborative music making residency program.
Music Omi encourages its participants to share ideas; perform each other's works and write music for one another while exploring their own musical vision; and broaden their artistic and cultural horizons.
A singular feature of the Music Omi experience is the presentation of public performances during and at the conclusion of the residency, sharing some of their collaborative work with the public.
Omi International Arts Center is located in beautiful Ghent, New York, two and a half hours from New York City. Omi is situated on 300 acres of rolling farmland with spectacular views of the Catskills and the Hudson River Valley. The Fields Sculpture Park is a public exhibition space featuring over 80 contemporary sculptures. Open year-round, the park provides thousands of visitors the opportunity to experience the impact of important international contemporary sculpture in a striking natural setting. The Charles B. Benenson Visitors Center accommodates visitors to The Fields Sculpture Park, providing an indoor gallery and a café for exhibitions and events.
