Like many artists, Lynn Susholtz engages in an “art practice” that includes painting, sculpture and installation. Like some artists, Susholtz also operates a gallery and curates exhibitions of the work of other artists.
But there are few other artists whose art practice also includes public art, education, community activism, and communal gardening, cooking, design and performance, to name a few entries on her seemingly endless list of art-related ventures.
“It’s all part of an experiment in community-based art,” said Susholtz, whose University Avenue studio was the starting point in last month’s tour of North Park by visiting members of Americans for the Arts, the leading national arts advocacy organization.
