Valerie A. Balint is the program manager of Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios, which is based in the Berkshires of western Massachusetts. She is the former interim director of collections and research at Frederic Church’s Olana and a longtime advocate of preserved artists’ spaces and public art. Balint writes, “Art is the result of both a physical and mental practice, but what is displayed in a museum represents only the results. Artists’ homes and studios help us imagine the form of this rigorous process by allowing us to see where art was actually made and exposing us to the same input as the artists: they reveal not only an artist’s process, but what in the environment inspired it.”
