As a new phase in its programming, the Scuola offers to both past participants and independent working artists full access to its facilities and a professional atmosphere for the realization of new projects. Attending artists can make use of the Scuola’s diverse resources toward their individual creative pursuits, with the supervision and critical insights of Greg Murr and Brody Neuenschwander. These two artists will make themselves available to all, providing analysis and direction on possible courses of development for individual projects, and to the extent that participants seek. Throughout the summer, additional resident artists will be present and will further contribute to this stimulating environment. The Scuola’s SG Gallery will also be available for artists’ use under the auspices of its ongoing Kaleidoscope project, an evolving installation-oriented exhibition, artist-curated and documented weekly. In effect, all of the Scuola’s resources, including its full print studio, painting and drawing studio, Macintosh-based computer labs, library and courtyard garden will be open to participants, 9am – 10pm, Mondays – Saturdays. Participating artists will receive a key for personal access to facilities.

Though the mark of the pen is usually present in Neuenschwander’ s work, so are typographic letters, scratched letters, drawings and paintings. Neuenschwander asks serious questions about the place of calligraphy in the modern world and attempts to bridge the gap between conceptual art and the acts of drawing, painting, writing.
Neither the medium nor the message is the message.
Since 1989 Neuenschwander has collaborated with director Peter Greenaway, providing live-action calligraphy for the films Prospero’ s Books and The Pillow Book, as well as for the operas Writing to Vermeer and Columbus and many other projects.
Recent projects have included video installations, stained glass, monumental texts in metal and stage performances with live calligraphy.
