The Harborfront Inn and Sound View’s way of giving back to the community takes shape every year through our Uncommon Art Artist Residence program. This year, we’ve invited a new group of emerging artists who will live and work throughout both properties to be inspired by the North Fork.
We give each artist the creative license to work anywhere they wish—you might spot them drafting a score in Sound View’s Piano Bar, mixing media at Mitchell Park Marina, or turning our Conference Room into a temporary dark room. As part of the residency, each artist is invited to share something with the community (that’s you) whether it be a live-streamed performance, a socially distanced workshop, or even a display of their craft.
Building a Creative Community
As artists, photographers and writers converge at The Harborfront Inn and Sound View, a powerful conversation of the creative community ignites. With regular, open dialogues for North Fork natives, we tap into the energy of community to celebrate inclusion and creativity. Our artist participants will host open working sessions, display key works, and perform, inviting the community into rare opportunities to witness the artist’s journey, from inspiration to completion.
