a public art residency project collaboration between Torrance Art Museum and Madrona Marsh Preserve and Nature Center, with support from the Torrance Art Museum Advocates (TAMA) and Friends of Madrona Marsh (FOMM)
The residency program invites contemporary artists with an environmental focus to interact with the Madrona Marsh Preserve, scientists, researchers, students, and the public for a period of one (1) month, during which they will research, develop, and build a site specific work of art, to be presented on the public grounds around the preserve for four (4) months.
The program offers a unique opportunity for artists interested in ecological issues to engage with a rich and unique ecosystem. The program facilitates novel linkage between artists, the natural world present in the marsh, pressing bionomical concerns, and the public.
