    Artists in Residence

    The Artists in Residence program is at the heart of creativity at Medalta. Artists from all over the world come to Medalta for lengths of time from one day to one year to make in a community that validates risk and nurtures creativity. This creativity is transferred to the community through both our Exhibition and Education programs.

    The resident artists also teach in our Education program which includes curricular and co-curricular programming, as well as summer camps. The resident artists occupy a vital role in delivering programming in our lifelong learning program. As an organization, The Friends of Medalta Society has been a leader in developing creative pathways in museology, social enterprise, and community engagement.
