Historic Artists' Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip: The Dorothy Riester House and Studio (Hilltop House and Studio)
Join us for a virtual road trip across the United States to explore unique and wholly original historic artist homes and studios. Traveling from Idaho to New York, we'll discover the environments, architecture, and private landscapes of six different artists, as well as the spaces that supported their art-making practices. This six-part, monthly series ventures deep into the museums and preserved spaces that nurtured the creation of thousands of American artworks. Fueled by the James Castle House and the Historic Artists' Homes & Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Traveling from Chicago, Illinois, to Cazenovia, New York, the last stop of this six-part virtual road trip, we'll explore the artist Dorothy Riester and her hand-made home and studio sitting atop a 23-acre wooded landscape. Adventuring onto her upstate property, we'll experience Dorothy's sculpture and design practice and discover her love for historic preservation and land conservation that led to creation of the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park. Noted as Riester's most remarkable accomplishment, Stone Quarry Hill Art Park today is a public sculpture garden, exhibition space, and artist residency program.

The Dorothy Riester House and Studio (Hilltop House and Studio) at Stone Quarry Hill Art Park is the hand-crafted, artist-built home and studio of multidisciplinary artist, author, and preservationist Dorothy Winner Riester (1916 - 2017).
