Tough Art Artist Residency- Now Accepting Applications!
The Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh announces a call for artists for its annual Tough Art Artist Residency. The residency program invites artists to work in the museum to develop and create works that will be exhibited fall/winter 2018.
The Tough Art Program enables the Museum to expand its ever-growing collection of interactive artwork accessible to all. Pieces are incorporated into the Children's Museum programs with direct impact on the visitor experience. 2018 will be the twelfth year of the Tough Art Program.
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. The Tough Art exhibit of the artists' work opens in September during the Museum’s annual Year in Art celebration.
For program details and how to submit an application, please see the download at the bottom of the page. Applications for the summer 2018 residency will be accepted through March 30, 2018.
