KID Museum’s Visiting Artist Program invites artists to collaborate with Museum staff and visitors, working side by side to co-create exhibits, installations, and artwork, developing skills in design, building, and making. The Visiting Artist program is a unique opportunity for families to understand how the making of art can express identity, build community connections, and strengthen STEM and creative problem-solving skills.
