In this post in our "Behind the Scenes with an Artist" series, Jackman Class Resident Artist Jeremiah Hulsebos-Spofford takes us inside his studio—and his head—sharing his process and his mindset leading up to the opening of his first solo show, Hall of Khan. The culmination of his residency at the Art Center, Hall of Khan is big and bold, both in concept and execution. Featuring large-scale architectural structures, sculptures, and yes, live horses, the show really takes the audience for a ride. And making it happen was no small feat. Read on to find out about Jeremiah's most nerve-wracking moments, and who he wants to high five. And be sure to catch the horses in the galleries at one of the exhibition's related events throughout the run of the show, on view through July 28.
