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:
Created in 2007, the Tough Art artist residency program connects artists from across the spectrum of all the arts to the resources and visitors at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. The residency looks to expand the skills of established and emerging artists, giving them the ability to create work for one of the toughest venues for art: a children’s museum.
Selected artists generate and implement interactive, immersive and/or collaborative projects and connect the art-making process to the larger museum context and the museum visitor. Artists are tasked to make a direct impact on the visitor experience by creating an entirely new piece to be displayed in the Museum. Throughout the residency, artists prototype and evaluate their process to achieve the desired outcome.
The Museum would like to congratulate the following artists on being selected for the 2019 residency:
· Ryder Henry- Pittsburgh, PA
· Eunice Choi- Chicago, IL
· Owen Lowery- Athens, OH
Artists will be in residency at the Museum from June-August. Final works of art will be exhibited September 2019- January 2020.
Additional information on the program is available at: CMP Tough Art.
