    Sponsorship

    The Bascom wishes to express deep gratitude to our sponsor, Antique Reclaimed Lumber, Cashiers and Nebo, North Carolina, whose contribution of over 2,100 board feet of lumber and delivery services have made the 2016 Bascom Site-Specific Sculpture Residency possible.

     

    Volunteer Calling

    The Bascom Site-Specific Sculpture Residency is a community undertaking, involving residents of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. Volunteers from the community have registered to aid in the sculpture construction. To volunteer, contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 828-787-2898 or tanderson@thebascom.org

     

    Outreach Calling

    In addition to building a site-specific sculpture, the resident acts a Bascom ambassador to the local community. He will provide studio visits to Western Carolina University graduate students in the Master of Fine Arts degree program. He will present his portfolio and inform the public of his Bascom residency through school and community group field trips to The Bascom. To plan a field trip to meet the artist, contact the Outreach Department at 828-787-2897 or education@thebascom.org.

     

    The Artist

    The 2016 Sculpture Residency is awarded to the artist, John Kenneth Melvin. Melvin is an American born multi-disciplinary artist producing work intended or situated in the public realm.  Throughout all of his work there is a strong commitment to a material investigation guided by conceptual practice.  Centered in this investigation is his intent to distill a meaning of ecology relevant to culture. 

    Melvin’s work depends greatly on cross-cultural exchange and as such his work takes him all over the world.  He manifests his work in the form of commissions, residencies, and exhibitions nationally in the United States, as well as internationally in Scotland, France, Italy, Greece, and Ukraine.  Melvin earned his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, Massachusetts, a Post-Baccalaureate from the Pont-Aven School of Contemporary Art in France, and received his MFA in 2009 from the San Francisco Art Institute.
