Artist-in-Residence - The DoSeum



Since 2017, the DoSeum has partnered with professional mid-career artists who seek ways to challenge the young curious minds of San Antonio through their art and encourage them to engage with the exhibits through activities that provoke them to think outside of the box. The Artist-in-Residence exhibits provide children with the opportunity to interact with their work and appreciate the artistic process while still connecting themes of STEM and literacy.


2020 Artists-In-Residence

Sarah Sudhoff


Sudhoff is a visual artist, educator and former photo editor for Texas Monthly and Time magazines. She is the former Executive Director for the Texas Photographic Society and the former Executive Director of Houston Center for Photography and owner of Capsule Gallery in Houston. Sudhoff holds an M.F.A. in Photography from Parsons School of Design, New York, and a B.A. in Journalism and Photography from the University of Texas at Austin. She taught photography at Stephen F. Austin State University, Nacogdoches, Trinity University, San Antonio and the Art Institute of San Antonio.

Sudhoff’s work interweaves themes of gender, science, and personal experience through photographs —staged and found — as well as through performance, installation, and small-scale sculpture. Artist grants from Houston Arts Alliance (2020, 2019 & 2017) and The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation (2013) have furthered her career. Her artwork has been included in exhibitions throughout the U.S. and abroad, including recent and upcoming exhibitions and performances at Filter Photo, Chicago; PhotoPlace Gallery, Middlebury; The Pandemic Archive, New York; grayDuck Gallery, Austin; Center for Fine Art Photography, Fort Collins, Health Museum Houston, Houston; Colorado Photographic Arts Center, Denver; Texas Vignette, Dallas; Satellite Art Show, Austin; Experimental Action, Houston; Cindy Lisica Gallery, Houston; Galveston Arts Center, Galveston; Pioneer Works, Brooklyn; grayDuck Gallery, Austin; Filter Photo, Chicago; Roots & Culture, Chicago; and the DongGang International Photo Festival in South Korea. She has participated in artist residencies at Artpace, San Antonio, and the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction, Bloomington, IN.



Previous artist residents have been selected based on proposals that simultaneously challenge them to explore new facets of their own work while incorporating meaningful experiences for guests. 

Richard Armendariz inaugurated our AIR program in 2017 with his Dream Keeper exhibit that challenged guests with culturally relevant character development through an installation, an animated video projection, and printmaking workshops. 

Calder Kamin and Gregorio Mannino, Artists-in-Residence for 2018, created original installations that accompanied The DoSeum’s Dream Tomorrow Today Tricentennial exhibit. Focusing on the future, both artists engaged guests through workshops and interactive exhibit spaces that explored our present and future relationships with nature, consumption, and sustainability.

2019 artists Amada Miller proposed the exploration of space through the visceral and memorable experience of using all our senses, particularly smell, to explore her multimedia installation of the universe. Mark Menjivar invited guests on an ingenious proposal to spend time together in close observation of the world of birding with an installation that occupied the halls and connectors of The DoSeum.
