Going Baroque: Drama and Gesture in the 17th Century
December 9, 2017–August 2018
This new gallery installation includes never-before-seen recent acquisitions including the Spanish sculpture, Saint Peter of Alcántara, and the painting, The Judgment of Solomon, by Dutch artist Matthais Stom, who worked for his entire career in Italy. Visitors will come away with an understanding of the Baroque style and an appreciation for signature works in the Currier’s collection.
artist in residence
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.
