Artist-in-Residence Program + Studio
FWM provides artists at all stages of their careers the chance to experiment with new materials, media, and techniques and push their creative boundaries. By collaborating with FWM’s Studio of artists, Artists-in-Residence take their work in fresh and often unexpected directions. Among the more than 400 artists who have collaborated with FWM are Roy Lichtenstein, Betty Woodman, Louise Bourgeois, Carrie Mae Weems, Anish Kapoor, Sonya Clark, Richard Tuttle, Sarah Sze, Yinka Shonibare, William Wegman, Joan Jonas, and Nick Cave.
Exhibitions + Collection Care
FWM’s Artist-in-Residence exhibitions not only break fresh creative ground but bring artists’ work to new audiences. Retrospective shows draw on our collection of more than 5,000 works of art, as well as archived video, prototypes, and notes from residencies that reveal the artistic process and represent a veritable chronicle of contemporary artmaking.

Education + Community Outreach
FWM is an education center for Philadelphia youth: Apprentice Training provides burgeoning young artists with technical and vocational skills while introducing them to new approaches to creative expression; and Onsite Studio brings much-needed art education into primary and secondary school classrooms. FWM creatively engages the community through outreach initiatives and partnerships, with inclusivity at the center of everything it does.
