Every month the museum invites artists to install and demonstrate their art form at the de Young. This interactive program enables visitors to meet artists and experience their process of making new work. For one month, artists reside in the Kimball Education Gallery at the de Young museum, providing an opportunity for visitors of all ages to assist the artist with interactive projects. Find out more about the Artist Studio.
The Kimball Education Gallery is located in the free zone of the museum; no tickets are required. Please drop by any time during open hours.
The Periscope Project aims to find ways to engage audiences and artists online. Through the Periscope Project, we invite you and the artists to engage in the project before and after the onsite residency. With artist talks, chats, hands-on activities, visitors’ stories, and other online programs, the museum seeks to expand peoples’ awareness of and experience of the artistic process, while allowing artists to build a community, locally and globally.
The de Young Periscope Project is generously funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
