Tough Art Artist Residency
The Tough Art artist residency is for emerging artists to expand their skills and create an entirely new interactive artwork that is accessible to a larger public, namely that of a children's museum. Pieces are incorporated into the Children's Museum and/or programs with direct impact on the visitor experience. 2016 is the tenth year of the Tough Art artist residency.
Over the course of the summer, artists engage museum professionals in critical dialog as it relates to their work, generate and implement interactive, immersive and/or collaborative projects, connect the art-making process to the larger museum context and the museum visitor, and prototype and evaluate their process to achieve the desired outcome. A Tough Art exhibit of the artists' work opens in September.
