The BFK’s Artist in Residence Program aims to engage professional artists in our multi-disciplinary arts programming (visual, sculptural, textile, writing, and music).
  • 8-week engagement
  • Host at least 8-hours of studio time, open to the public
  • Host 2 interactive programs: 1 designed for kids/families and one designed for local educators (that can be offered as professional development) (programs can be hosted in-person or virtually)
  • Opportunity to display, install, or perform work at the Building for Kids (in-person and/or virtually)
  • Opportunity to sell work to the Building for Kids to become a part of the museum’s permanent collection
  • Cost of supplies and materials needed for programs covered by the Building for Kids
  • Paid stipend of $1000
Artist’s time at the Building for Kids can be structured throughout the 8-week engagement to fit with other employment our outside engagements.
