About the Artist Project


Ever since it was founded in 2020, The GTM Gallery of Art has been a place where artists come to gain inspiration from works of art from their own time and place, and also from across time and cultures.

The Artist Project  is an online series in which we give artists an opportunity to respond to our encyclopedic collection.

From January 2020, we invited 20 artists—local, national, and global—to choose individual works of art or galleries that spark their imaginations. In this online series, artists reflect on what art is, what inspires them from across 5,000 years of art, and in so doing, they reveal the power of a gallery and GTM. Their unique and passionate ways of seeing and experiencing art encourage all gallery visitors to look in a personal way.

The Artist Project  will share the perspectives of twenty artists with the public, telling us what they see when they look at GTM.
