Past Artists In Residence
In a city where are spaces are disappearing, we are proud to partner with Big Medium for our LINE Residency—a six week opportunity for local artists to experiment and create in a new environment.
Adrian Armstrong is a multidisciplinary creative from Omaha, NE now living and working out of Austin, TX. Through portrait and figurative practices, Armstrong’s work explores identity and what it means to be a black person living in modern America. His work touches on topics such as depression within the black community, systematic oppression, and police brutality; but on the other side of the spectrum explores fashion, love, success, and growth.
