artist in residence
November 1 to December 13, 2022
The artist Eriko Tsogo is in residence at the Currier Museum of Art until December 13, 2022. Tsogo is committed to collaborative art projects, especially her Green Mask Project which is concerned with the environment and identity.
We invite audiences every Thursday evening during Art After Work to participate in the creation of a community totem that will represent the spirit of Manchester. Participants may bring recycled objects such as clean cardboard, plastics, magazines, and other packaging. (Workshop dates listed below).
Eriko Tsogo is a multidisciplinary artist, curator, and cultural producer based in Denver and Los Angeles. She was born in Mongolia and received her BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston. She is the founder of Hilitehead, a fine art and web-based curatorial firm.
The Currier Museum of Art’s Artist-in-Residence program invites artists from around the country and the world to live and work at the museum. While in residence, artists consider the collection and engage with our community. The program is central to the Currier Museum’s mission of connecting our audiences with art and creative thinking.

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.
