Artist-in-Residence Program

Your children are one-of-a-kind, and so is the art they make.
That’s why we designed the Artist-in-Residence Program.

Abby, an interdisciplinary artist and art educator based our of Denver, joined us "brimming with create energy and expertise," says Arts Program Coordinator, Salim Khoury.

Abby's residency lasted from April - June, and during this time, she worked with the kids to create strange and wonderful worlds through large-scale collaborative paintings. 

Abby's leave-behind piece will soon be making a permanent home here in the Museum, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled!

Artist-in-Residence Blog

To share the wonder and joy with you, we created an Artist-in-Residence Blog. Be sure to check it out regularly for cool videos, open studio hours, workshops, interviews with the artists and the collaborated works our artists make with you - Museum guests.

What is the Artist-in-Residence Program?

A truly special, exclusive art opportunity. Not only do professional Colorado artists come to work in the Museum and create beautiful art, but visiting guests of all ages contribute and collaborate.

The program is open to artists working in a variety of media, including sculpture, illustration, paints or textiles. Artists set up shop in The Art Studio and work for 2-3 months on a project to install at the Museum. Children and adults alike are invited to be part of this amazing program and witness the impact your creativity can make in the world!
