Laura Sellner of Superior Siren was selected as the 2019 Spring Green musician in residence Sept. 21-Oct. 5. The residency review panel described Sellner as having a deep creative energy, clear songwriting talent and being poised to benefit from his time in Spring Green.
Springboard initiated this idea for it's first Musician in Residency thanks to a generous grant from the Spring Green Area Arts Coalition. It developed in collaboration with the Shitty Barn and local businesses and venues. This year marks the second year of the residency.
The residency's goal is to provide creative space for a musician to songwrite, perform and collaborate. Sellner will enjoy two weeks in Spring Green, allowing her a unique time and space to spend in her craft. Collaborative sessions with local artists will provide a space for Sellner to help others with creative inspiration and will in turn, provide her with new creative works and energy.
The Spring Green Musician in Residence features several free and one ticketed event throughout the two weeks.

GARD THEATER MURAL
E.LEE has his home and studio in downtown Chicago, and has fallen in love with Spring Green on his numerous visits here. A street artist drawn to trompe-l'oeil techniques (optical illusion giving two dimensional work the appearance of three dimensions) he has work in London, Amsterdam, Japan and Chicago. He has been approached by Lyft, Nickelodeon, Soho House Hotels and Hubbard Street Dance for his work.
Springboard is thrilled to have E.LEE and his work come to Spring Green, thanks in large part to a grant from Spring Green Area Arts Coalition and the support of the Community Theater Board of Directors. Painting is set to begin September 27, and the Spring Green community will get to witness the work unfold over about ten days right in the heart of our downtown. Work is scheduled to be completed before a final celebration on October 6, when the community will get a chance to share about the experience with the artist in a casual conversation, followed by Spring Green's popular wood-fired pizza dinner by Large Batch Scratch at Arcadia Books.
E.LEE will meet with the local art students and get a chance to be part of our extraordinary community during his time here. Many thanks to the local businesses that have offered their support for this project.
