Hong Hong has exhibited her multidisciplinary work, “Everlasting Ephemera” during her residency at the college. Through paper-making, sculpture and installation, “Everlasting Ephemera” questions environmental, cultural, and social structures, as well as their long-term sustainability and equity. While at Lane, Hong Hong has worked on aspects of the project and one of her large-scale paper works will become part of the college's permanent collection.

Born in Hefei, China, Hong is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice spans paper-making, sculpture, installation, and performance. Her work has been exhibited at Real Art Ways, Pittsburgh Center for the Arts, Madison Museum of Fine Art, New Mexico History Museum, and Georgia Museum of Art. Hong is the recipient of grants from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Center for the Arts at Wesleyan University, the Edward C. & Ann T. Roberts Foundation, The Greater Hartford Arts Council, and Artspace New Haven. Hong currently lives and works in Connecticut.

The artist-in-residence program is funded by the Roberta Konnie Endowment Fund of the LCC Foundation to support visiting scholars and experts in their field.
