Program Overview

2019 marks the fourth year of the Artist-in-Residence Program at the Children’s Museum. This program provides an opportunity for families to observe and create with professional artists through open studio hours. And, with the help of Museum guests, artists design a custom piece for the Museum.

The Artist-in-Residence Program is open to professional artists working in a variety of media including 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

Learn more about this one-of-a-kind opportunity in this video with program alums or at the Artist-in-Residence Blog.

Now accepting applications for the class of 2019. Interviews start in September. Rolling applications, accepted until all four slots are filled. Request for Proposal and application here.
