Artist-in-Residence at the Westmoreland Museum of American Art
The Westmoreland Museum of American Art established a new Artist-in-Residency Program, made possible by generous support from The Pittsburgh Foundation, in collaboration with BOOM Concepts in September 2020.
The program, which will feature 4 to 6 artists annually, emphasizes the Museum’s commitment to engaging and supporting Black and marginalized artists, to promoting equity in the arts, and to sharing compelling and meaningful cultural experiences with the regional community.
During their residency, the artist in residence will reside in a property owned by The Westmoreland within walking distance of the Museum and downtown Greensburg. The Center for Creative Connections, our interactive hands-on space which is currently closed due to COVID, has been transformed into a flexible, open studio space for the artists to work. When COVID safety protocols allow, this studio will also provide opportunities for our guests to meet and learn from artists in residence. Until then, the artists in residence will offer insightful virtual public programs.
