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.
2019 Tough Art Residency Program:
NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!
For program details, please see "2019 Tough Art Residency Program - Request for Proposals" download at the bottom of the page.
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 2019 to January 2020.
Additional information on the program is available at: CMP Tough Art
Deadline: Applications must be recieved by 11:59 pm on March 31, 2019.
