Artist in Residence

Discovery Center is now accepting applications for our fall 2019 artist in residence program that focuses on sustainable practices in Middle Tennessee. This project provides an opportunity for children and families who visit the Center to observe and interact with a professional artist and culminates in an artist creating an installation that is produced with materials like wood, recycled materials, or any other responsibly sourced materials of the artist’s choice. The installation will be on exhibit at the Discovery Center and will encourage visitors to have a better appreciation of natural areas like the wetlands.

Applications will be accepted through Sept. 6.
