PAMELA DAVIS KIVELSON
Since 2015, Churchill Club’s artist-in-residence Pamela Davis Kivelson has used visual art performances to capture artistic moments from those who speak at Churchill Club. Past art has included the use of drawing, photography, and other media to capture fleeting micro-expressions and gestures that reveal emotions beneath the surface of what is happening at an event.
Most recently, Pam created works utilizing AI for the 2019 CHURCHILLS event. Pam’s pioneering work with AI has been incredibly exciting to see over the five years of her residency. Its iterative processes have given her a completely new way to challenge traditional notions of portraiture.
