Greenhill’s Pop-Up Residency is a 10-day program in which selected NC artists create and exhibit artworks in ArtQuest. A Pop-Up Residency is perfect for the artist who enjoys interaction with visitors and likes to engage in active conversations about creative practices and artmaking. Our goal is for the artist to be energized by the interactions and for the visitor to deepen their experience at Greenhill and help them make connections between the works in The Gallery and an artist’s creative process.
