Visiting Artist Program

NXTHVN’s Visiting Artist Program is designed to enrich our arts ecosystem by inviting world-class artists to be in dialogue with our fellows, apprentices, and broader New Haven community. The Visiting Artist has a deeper engagement with our organization by spending an extended amount of time at NXTHVN, through multiple visits, to interact with fellows in their studios, lead a workshop of their choosing with our fellows, facilitate a session for our high school apprentices, and give a talk that is open to the public.

Fall 2023

NXTHVN is pleased to announce Mickalene Thomas as the inaugural artist for the Visiting Artist Program. Thomas will be at NXTHVN in the fall with our fellows and apprentices to conduct studio visits, facilitate workshops and have a public talk in conjunction with her exhibition Mickalene Thomas / Portrait of an Unlikely Space, which she cocurated, and is currently on view at the Yale University Art Gallery. We are thrilled to welcome Mickalene to the NXTHVN!
