BFK Artist in Residence

The Building for Kids has an Artist in Residence Program!

The BFK’s Artist in Residence Program aims to engage professional artists in our multi-disciplinary arts programming (visual, sculptural, textile, writing, and music).
Artists receive a stipend for an 8-week residency, during which they have the opportunity to host studio hours, where they can create or compose their work and engage with museum visitors. During their residency, the BFK will host interactive, artist-led workshops for children, families, and educators. Artists will also have the opportunity to create artwork for the BFK to purchase and add to the museum’s permanent collection.

Interested artists can start the process by clicking here to complete an online form!

After completing the form, you will be contacted by Beth Vanderloop, Director of Programs & Community Engagement to discuss next steps.
