The Rogers Art Loft at The Lucy, a multi-disciplinary artist-in-residency program dedicated to inclusivity, originality, and empowerment of artists, successfully pivoted to a virtual format due to COVID-19 and is now set to welcome its third virtual artist-in-residence, Daniel Melo Morales, beginning Aug. 31.

An interdisciplinary artist and educator, Morales currently resides in San Francisco where he will remain while participating in his virtual artist-in-residency with Rogers Art Loft in Las Vegas. During his residency, Morales will further explore vocality and sound.

Given the absence of in-person artistic and creative connection, Morales has devised another set of strategies to reach out from San Francisco to Las Vegas and beyond and is eager to connect with the community on a more personal level, in particular using the USPS as a resource and tool for connection.

His residency begins with a virtual artist in conversation on Sept. 4 at 7 pm and will include other participatory elements including virtual studio visit, Instagram Takeover, and final culminating performance.

During his virtual performance, "Bodies Affected by Frequencies and Intensities,” Morales will be continuing his investigation of vocality.

He has begun by exploring two aspects: the sound of the human voice independent of language meaning and the sound of breath itself.
