The sixth Social Studies Residency at the ASU Art Museum has ended. The Artist Residency ran from February 1 - May 14, 2011.

Because this was a collaborative, community-based residency, the artist’s schedule fluctuated. The artist might have been in the gallery and open to engagement; he might have been involved with an in-gallery program that requires his undivided attention or working on components of the installation that, for public safety or privacy needs, required the gallery to be closed to visitors; or he might have been out of the gallery, engaged in related off-site activities. We strongly encouraged museum-goers to visit the gallery at several different times during the course of the three-month residency, to get a sense of the project as a whole.

Tours of Tent City Jail

As part of the (Re)Search programs, project participants were able to explore the impact of modern criminal justice through direct experience of fact-based tours. Because jails and prisons are the focal point of punishment today, viewers had an opportunity to tour the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) Tent City Jail.
