Newport Art Museum is proud to announce its selection of Aimée Beaubien as its first artist-in-residence. Aimée will be living and creating at the Museum during the month of June 2020.
Aimée Beaubien is a Chicago-based artist and Assistant Professor in the Department of Photography at SAIC. Her cut-photo collages explore collapses in time, space, and place. She is very intrigued by historic archives and collections and how historically-significant objects are curated and presented at museums, as well as in private homes.
