YECK Artist-in-Residence PROGRAM
The Yeck Artist-in-Residence (AiR) fellowship engages a local artist with museum guests, particularly families and children in DAI’s nationally renowned Lange Family Experiencenter (LFE) gallery. The program provides a paid opportunity for greater Dayton area artists to create an original, participatory art project related Stories in Cloth, a year-long exhibition about textile-based artworks. By designing and offering an interactive and engaging hands-on creative arts experience, the AiR supports families’ and children’s connection to museum spaces. Reporting to the Curator of Education, the AiR lasts approximately 4 months, or a total of approximately 180 hours. The first month of the 4-month residency is reserved for planning and mentorship from museum staff, with the remaining 3 to be actively working in the LFE.
Artists will receive access to the Dayton Art Institute spaces and staff, guidance and mentorship from Curatorial and Education departments, the opportunity to create a collaborative public art installation, approximately 100 sq. ft. of working space, up to a $12,000 stipend and up to an additional $5,000 for materials and supplies.
