Last Friday the Plumbing Museum celebrated the commencement of a new artist residency program in partnership with J.C. Cannistraro. The Manoog Family Artist Residency (named after the founding family of the Plumbing Museum) is a three month program, which aims to connect artists with industrial resources and technology for the creation of new work. An official ribbon cutting took place at the new art studio housed within the Cannistraro fabrication facility.
As part of the program, artists will receive a 24-hour access to a non-living studio space, cash stipend, as well as fabrication and welding resources available upon request. Following the program’s completion, an exhibition of the resident artists’ work will take place at the Plumbing Museum. Stay tuned for more details!
Beginning this week, we are also pleased to welcome our first resident artist, Ryan Leitner, a recent MFA graduate of the Tufts University-School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
