Program Description

Applications for the 2020/21 Artists in Residence program are now being accepted in PAINTING/DRAWING or MOTION/ANAMATICS/DESIGN. The Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Artists in Residence program (AIR) is an education-based residency which allows two emerging artists from different disciplines to live and work on the MWPAI and PrattMWP College of Art & Design campus in Utica, NY for one academic year. The AIR program is designed for emerging artists or recent visual arts MFA graduates interested in art education in community arts and college curriculums while receiving support to develop a vibrant, self-directed studio practice. Programming includes presenting a lecture to PrattMWP students and the public, teaching community arts education classes, holding a public open studio event, and designing and implementing accessible community projects at the Museum of Art. Artists receive financial support, housing, meals, studio, and two-person exhibition in the museum.
