RTS is excited to have artist in residence Chelsea Flowers here for Nov and Dec!

Based in Detroit, Chelsea A. Flowers is an artist who holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. And a BFA from Denison University with a concentration in Black Studies. She has shown work at various galleries in Columbus and Cleveland Ohio; including Marcia Evans Gallery, Junctionview Studios, with upcoming exhibits at Muted Horn Gallery and ACRE Projects Space. Additionally she has held performances at Hatch Gallery in Detroit, and the Museum of Human Achievement in Austin. She has given performative lectures at Cranbrook Academy of Art, College for Creative Studies and Wayne State University. She has expanded her skills and research by attending ACRE and Unlisted Projects residencies, culminating in various performances at the establishments. Her practice explores subversion to popular culture and how “otherness” is created, and social and cultural critique of her environment. She explores these ideas through comedic troupes, physical play, nostalgic memorabilia, and participatory performance.
