What is the C3 Visiting Artist Project?
The Center for Creative Connections (C3) Visiting Artist Project invites artists based in North Texas to create an interactive installation around a theme related to the works on view in the C3 Gallery. Selected individuals will work with Museum staff for two months prior to installation to develop and facilitate interpretive content, project logistics, and educational programs for their project. Each installation will be on view in the C3 Gallery for a four-month period.
