The Crow Collection’s Free Artist Residency Program gave twelve local high school students the opportunity to work with contemporary artist Kankan Huang
and Crow Collection Educators at the museum over the course of three days. Kankan Huang graduated from Hubei Institute of Fine Arts in central China and spent five years working with Ai Weiwei at his Beijing studio, Fake Design. Drawing inspiration from Huang’s work and community members’ personal stories of Chinese New Year traditions, students will create works of art through a mold-making and casting process that will be on view at the Crow Collection during the museum’s Chinese New Year celebration.
