The HRM Teaching Artists-in-Residence and Teaching Scientists-in-Residence are outside professionals who work with the Museum to create programs that enhance the historic, artistic, or literary themes of the current exhibitions or the Museum’s permanent collections.
The Museum’s distinctive residency program gives emerging artists and scientists the unique opportunity to develop their practice while providing meaningful and accessible community outreach that connects visitors to the art on view and facilitates understanding, while effecting social and environmental equity through the power of the visual, performing, and/or literary arts.
During their four-month residency, Teaching Artists-in-Residence and Teaching Scientists-in-Residence train the Museum’s Junior Docents to facilitate meaningful hands-on activities for children in family workshops, and interact with the Museum’s volunteer adult Docents, who lead tours for schools and visitors. They create and lead participatory experiences in the galleries and workshops for the general public, including teens, adults, and seniors.
