Program Overview

2018 marks the third year of the Artist-in-Residence Program at the Children’s Museum. This program provides an opportunity for children and families who visit the Museum to observe and interact with professional artists and, through special events and custom workshops, affords opportunities for engagement to low-income school groups. Additionally, awarded artists create and curate a custom piece for the Museum.

The Artist-in-Residence Program is open to professional artists working in a variety of media including, but not limited to painting, sculpture, installation, photography, clay, textiles, illustration and digital media. The goals of the Artist-in-Residence Program are to:

  • Enhance the role of the Museum as a center of cultural and artistic investigation for families and children
  • Make emerging artists’ work more accessible to the public
  • Provide new avenues of art exploration for guests of the Museum
  • Connect young children to the power of art-making and art as an expression of identity, experience and community
