Arghavan Khosravi joined us in residence from April 12 to April 25, 2022. During her stay, Khosravi met with local high school students, Currier art classes, and participated in our one of a kind program Art of Hope. Khosravi was present for the opening of her first museum exhibition, as well as an in person public ARTalk about her surrealist paintings that explore themes of exile, freedom, and empowerment.

Our Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program invites artists to live and work at the museum. While in residence, artists consider the collection and community, and refresh our perspectives on the role of the museum. The program is central to the Currier Museum’s mission of connecting our audiences with art and creative thinking, whether of the past or the future. We hope to learn from our visiting artists – and be surprised by their perspectives.
Artists working in all media participate in the AIR program, which has three main components: 1) an open call to support emerging artists making socially engaged art; 2) an invitational through which artists are selected to develop special projects, commissions, or exhibitions; and 3) artist-led, community-centered public art projects in the city of Nashua, NH.
Open Call for Artist in Residence Applications
Our annual open call is currently live from October 1 – December 1, 2022. Artists who share the museum’s goal of positively impacting communities through the transformative power of art are encouraged to apply to this residency.
Archived material on past exhibitions can be explored further here, and recent past exhibition catalogues are available through the museum shop.
