Visiting Artist Program

At KID Museum we see artists as makers, creative problem solvers, and changemakers. The Visiting Artist Program invites artists to collaborate with our staff and community to create original artwork in our space and show how art is made. We seek to broaden the perception of art as a way to strengthen STEM skills, provide opportunities for storytelling, form cultural and community connections, create new pathways for identity exploration, and elevate creative expression.
