Good Hart Artist Residency: Rashaun Rucker Coming

Are you next? Apply now.
By Lynda Wheatley | Jan. 8, 2022

Tiny enclave though it is, Good Hart manages to bring some of the coolest creatives we’ve seen Up North. It just announced the selected artist for its 2022 Elevating Diverse Voices Curated Residency Program — Rashaun Rucker, a photographer, printmaker, journalist, and the first African American to be named Michigan Press Photographer of the Year (2008).

Rucker won’t arrive until this August, but you can see his work — which he says “examines social and cultural issues in America, with a particular focus on human rights, mental illness, the black experience, and the influence of inequality” — now at www.rashaunrucker.com and pictured above.

You can also get to know the writers and artists in residence this winter at goodhartartistresidency.org.

Wish your name was among them? Guess what? The open calls for artists, writers, and composers looking to be part of a late 2022/early 2023 Good Hart residency is currently live there, too.
