Artists Journey and Promise

Marijane Singer Artist-in-Residence Program


Established in 1985, The Blauvelt’s  Artist-in-Residence program continues to draw some of the world’s most celebrated artists.

Artists are selected on the basis of their artistic ability and promise, and on their commitment to the museum’s mission to protect and conserve wildlife and its habitats.

The museum provides a furnished home for the artist, on museum property, which includes a studio, painting supplies, etc.

Artists-in-Residence give lectures, lead round-table discussions, visit schools, demonstrate painting and drawing techniques – all to promote the museum’s mission and enhance its community outreach.

In November 2010, the Artist-in-Residence program was renamed the Marijane Singer Artist-in-Residence Program, in honor of its Museum Director, Marijane Singer who was affiliated with the museum for 25 years.
