The Ceramics Research Center is launching a new artist residency program, featuring two textile and fiber artists in this first iteration. The residency offers artists an open studio space, opportunities to work with the Museum’s permanent collections and to meet with curators, students, scholars and museum audiences. Two days a week, their studios will be open to the public to provide direct engagement with working artists and learn more about the artistic process.
César Esteban Bernal states “My work stands as an extension of my lived experience as a first-generation, queer, Mexican-American Chicanx with disabilities – through which I construct my identity and body; an invitation for a speechless conversation to understand the complicated self that is mine.
Working 11 am – 5 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays
