Over the course of the year, the Museum works with artists and invites them to participate with Museum staff and visitors in a wide variety of ways to generate interactive fine artworks.
Tough Art Artist Residency
The artists for the Children's Museum's 2018 Tough Art Artist Residency have been chosen:
- Isaac Levine, Pittsburgh, PA
- Miranda Miller and Lumi Barron, Pittsburgh, PA
- Neil Mendoza, San Francisco, CA
This residency offers established and emerging artists the opportunity to expand their skills and create artwork for one of the toughest venues for art: a children’s museum. Artists are tasked with making interactive, immersive and/or collaborative projects that have a direct impact on the visitor experience. Throughout the summer residency, artists prototype with visitors and evaluate their process to achieve the desired outcome. Final works of art are exhibited at the Children’s Museum from September 2018 to January 2019.
2018 is the twelfth year of the Tough Art Program.
