The Lucerne Artist Studio in Chicago has welcomed a new artist-in-residence. Swiss musician and composer Philipe Burrell will spend his time in Chicago creating music and adding to his already impressive resume. He has played with a number of bands and has participated in various projects, including with the band Marygold.
For over ten years, the Lucerne Committee of CSCI has hosted numerous professional artists of various disciplines at its unique artist-in-residence program. The aim is to develop professional artist collaborations and to strengthen the relationship between Chicago and Lucerne. From a large pool of applicants, the Lucerne Committee selects Chicago artists for a two to three month residency in Lucerne, and a specially selected jury in Lucerne selects Swiss artists to come and create in Chicago.
