Artists in Residence: Lawrence Stueck

Saturday, Oct. 26 @ RSVP for Location

Lawrence Stueck’s Gyroscope House in the World of Wonder playground at the Southeast Clarke Park

WUGA’s creative Artists in Residence series is coming to a close after a five-year run with a final visit to the eclectic home of Lawrence Stueck. An influential educator and multi-dimensional artist, Steuck taught art at Athens Academy for 17 years, helped found the Oconee Cultural Arts Foundation, and has designed over 60 sculptural playscapes for children. His unusual home is in the former Sunday School rooms of a historic Watkinsville church built in 1909, where visitors will be able to explore his collection and see both past and upcoming projects. An interview with Stueck will be broadcasted on the station leading up to the open house.
