Carter Community Artists
Carter Community Artists have a passion for the arts, a love for our community, and a keen ability to unite the two.
Carter Community Artists, an annual initiative dedicated to supporting and working with local artists, enhances Museum events, connects the North Texas area with practicing artists, and builds a network among local artists. Every year, we select four local artists that help plan and lead events at the Museum and in the community. The yearlong commitment allows collaboration between artists and education staff on a wide array of projects and events designed for family, adult, and student audiences; related events take place both at the Museum and offsite in the community. Artists can expect to work between 20 and 40 hours over the year with the Education department at the Carter. The artists’ work planning, facilitating, and teaching will be supported by a $100/hour honorarium, with the number of hours varying per project.
Application Deadline: Applications for the January through December 2024 artist group are open through September 10. If you have specific questions, please email us.
Selected Carter Community Artists must be able to successfully pass a background check as this position frequently works with students in classroom and community center settings. Please note that employees of the Amon Carter Museum of American Art are ineligible for this opportunity.
