Funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, the Artist-in-Residence program, featuring Viviana Palacio and Keith Patterson of Cloud Formation Lab, will include a series of workshops throughout the year and culminate in a new interactive installation at the museum around the bird life of the Arroyo Seco.


Every Thursday, between 11:00am - 3:00pm* the artists will be at the museum studying the birds of the Arroyo Seco. They will be creating artwork and experimenting with visitors. Come visit and participate in their process. Also join us for interactive performance art led by our artists when guests will be invited to contribute and interact with Theater of Birds in a collective drawing exercise.



The Artists

The Artist collective Cloud Formation Lab is composed of the duo Viviana Palacio and Keith Patterson.


Their collaborative projects play with the sense of place, by reflecting upon the history or experience of a site, and inviting viewers to re-imagine their experiences in relation to each other and their surroundings. Their works use and bring to life materials from archives, with particular interest in exploring archival photographs and objects manufactured in the past, to reveal stories about the place, time, and culture where they were produced and delve into their significance today.


Come back soon to learn more about the Theater of Birds, their new interactive installation at the museum and see the documentation of the project.
