About the Program

The Museum is committed to working with artists to present excellent contemporary art to our visitors. Every year artists are invited to work with the museum through a multitude of programs and projects. The annual Tough Art Residency Program enables the Museum to expand its ever-growing collection of interactive artwork accessible to all. Pieces are incorporated into the Children’s Museum exhibition spaces with direct impact on the visitor experience. A Tough Art exhibition of the artists’ work opens at the conclusion of the residency.

This is the 13th year of the Tough Art Program.
