About the Duncanson Artist-in-Residence Program
Each autumn the Taft Museum of Art and the Duncanson Society invite an artist to be in residence at the Taft Museum of Art for two weeks. The artist-in-residence gives presentations and leads workshops for students, families, and adults onsite at the Taft Museum, and also at schools, colleges, churches, non-profit cultural institutions, or other public venues as appropriate.
The Duncanson Artist-in-Residence program honors the relationship between Nicholas Longworth and Robert S. Duncanson, the African American artist who in 1850 painted the suite of eight landscape murals in the entrance hall of Longworth’s home, now the Taft Museum of Art. Now in its 33rd year, the Duncanson Society works with the Taft Museum of Art to celebrate the accomplishments of African American artists from around the country.
Reporting to the Director of Learning and Engagement (L&E), the DAiR Program Coordinator helps the Taft deliver its mission: providing meaningful experiences by connecting people with great art in a historic setting, and in the community.
The DAiR Program Coordinator is responsible for facilitating all activities related to the Duncanson Artist-in-Residence (DAiR) program including: transportation, facilities, and participation. The Program Coordinator works with the public relations and marketing staff to disseminate promotional and printed materials for all residency activities, acts as liaison to the Duncanson Society, and completes a final report of the residency.
