In mid-October, Nemacolin partnered with Creative Capital to bring an exclusive art and culture experience to the resort: the 2022 Art Showcase Weekend.
Guests, featured artists, and members were immersed into the art world through a curated and imaginative exhibit with Friday’s events at The Nemacolin Golf Academy. Creative Capital artist Janine Antoni curated three exhibits at the Golf Academy: Honey Baby, 2013; Touch, 2002; and a digital, interactive, and immersive golf exhibit.
Saturday’s private viewing, Fall Out of the Ordinary by Nemacolin Art and Gallery Director Amanda Shane, shared select pieces from the Hardy Family Art Collection. Some fun, some historical, some priceless, and some pieces more recently curated, the exhibition set the stage for an extraordinary dinner. Live musical events, artistic florals by Nemacolin’s own Atelier, delectable food artistry by the resorts banquets and pastry teams, and a keynote talk by a representative from the Carnegie Museum of Art — another partner — rounded out the showcase of performing and creative artists.
Creative Capital is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to fund artists in the creation of groundbreaking new work in the visual arts, performing arts, literature, film, technology, and multidisciplinary practices, including socially-engaged work in all forms. Nemacolin made a grant donation which will fund the groundbreaking new works of three artists of color.
