It is giving artists a chance to expand their creativity, experiment and push themselves to their limits.
Organizers say the Taubman Museum's artist residency program is already achieving what it set out to.
The program has had two artists.
The latest is Anne Ferrar from France.
WDBJ7 caught up with her earlier this week as crews put up her exhibit, "Hot Pink."
Under this program, artists like Ferrar get a chance to create without worrying about space, time or money.
Ferrar compares the process to giving birth.
"It's a bit like a pastry chef or chef making wonderful food to share. There's an act of giving when you make a painting or sculpture that is wonderful. I really love that," says the artist.
Ferrar says she thought about how the big pink piece would play off the cold hard metal of the museum.
People will get to see for themselves Friday when the completed work opens to the public.
