The Summit’s annual artist-in-residence program features a commissioned work based on the theme of privacy or data. This year, we are honored to have sculptural artist, Tom Fruin as the Summit’s artist-in-residence.

Fruin is excited to be creating sculptural housing for the infamous phone Roy Olmstead used to manage his bootlegging business. This phone, and the wiretapping case, ultimately resulted in Olmstead’s arrest and law-changing legislation on privacy and governmental overreach. The artist will be making a stained-glass style phone booth enclosure with tacit symbols and imagery evocative of the case. Colored acrylic will both reveal and obscure the humble phone, heightening the emotional and physical impact of this important historical artifact.



The Summit is returning to the Marriott Marquis Washington, D.C., and Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

For 2022, we have reconfigured the venue space to ensure safe and comfortable access.
