Month at the Museum

June 27, 2011

Ever wonder what it would be like to live at a Museum?  If you read From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler as a child, like I did, you may have envied Claudia and Jamie Kincaid and their adventures living in The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago made this idea a reality with Month at the Museum.  They invited Kate McGroarty to live at the Museum around the clock for a month, and are accepting applications for another month-long residence later this year.  Check their web site for more details.

What would you  most look forward to if you could live at the Dallas Museum of Art for one month?

    What a fun job! I have a feeling I’d be too tempted to touch artworks if I was here all day every day for a month. Speaking of museum residencies, here’s one I’d like to do: http://www.imamuseum.org/100acres/artists/andreazittel/2011-island-resident
