Tough Art Residency Program

2020 Residency Update

In light of the latest statewide guidelines in Pennsylvania for COVID-19 and with the health and safety of our community in mind, we have made the difficult decision to suspend the Tough Art Residency Program for 2020。 Since we cannot confirm when the emergency orders will be lifted and the Museum will resume full operations, it is not feasible for our team to move forward with the residency as planned。  

This decision has not been an easy one and we don't take the impact it may have lightly。 We take great pride in supporting artists by hosting residencies, staging exhibitions and commissioning site-specific art works。 It saddens us to have to cut back during this challenging time。 We believe that the arts community is “tough” enough to withstand the current crisis and will continue to create artworks that inspire joy, creativity, and curiosity。  

We are looking forward to resuming the program next year and continuing the work of helping artists bring their creativity to life at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh.  

About the Program

Created in 2007, the Tough Art artist residency program connects artists from across the spectrum of all the arts to the resources and visitors at the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. The residency looks to expand the skills of established and emerging artists, giving them the ability to create work for one of the toughest venues for art: a children’s museum.

Selected artists generate and implement interactive, immersive and/or collaborative projects and connect the art-making process to the larger museum context and the museum visitor。 Artists are tasked to make a direct impact on the visitor experience by creating an entirely new piece to be displayed in the Museum。 Throughout the residency, artists prototype and evaluate their process to achieve the desired outcome。
