Painter in Residence: Walter Lynn Mosley

Earlier this summer, we set out to commission several artists for our inaugural Painter in Residence Program, in an effort to create a visual record of the park through representational artwork. We put out a request for applications, and received 39 qualified candidates. Of these, our panel narrowed the artists down to four.

You may have seen the first painter in residence around the park, over the last week and half. Walter Lynn Mosley has been hard at work creating impressionistic oil paintings of the parks terraces, plantings, and scenic landscapes.

Mr. Mosley's tenure ends tomorrow, but he'll be followed up by three more distinguished talents. Usually you can catch the painters in action Monday through Friday, with a morning session from 9am to noon, and an afternoon session from 1pm-5pm. Each will spend two weeks here, and you may see them outside of these hours if they try to depict any special lighting effects. We encourage you to wander the park and see these artists in action.

July 2 – July 13:  Walter Lynn Mosley
July 16 – July 27:  Andrea Arroyo
July 30 – August 10:  Patti Mollica
August 13 – August 24:  Yuka Imata
