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.


current artist: sol aldinger

Sol is a local artist who utilizes acrylic paint, collage and found objects to compare elements of nature to the human mind and body. Using art as a medium to create a body-positive atmosphere, he encourages everyone to celebrate their unique identity. 

Join Sol during open studio hours to learn more about individuality, self-love and the natural world.

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!

Curious about the program? Check out this video to hear from some of our former artists about why this program is so amazing!


Open 7 days a week from 9 am - 4 pm.
