MWPAI welcomes our 2018/19 Artists in Residence, Soojin Kim (painting and drawing) and Caroline Voagen Nelson (animation). Both were chosen from an international pool of artists to live, work, and teach on the MWPAI campus for 9 months.
Artists in Residence offer limited edition classes to the community in contemporary oil painting and stop motion animation. Check out these new classes.
Free public programing includes an artists lecture, open studios, exhibition, and kids crafts. Learn more about AIR events.
The Munson-Williams- Proctor Arts Institute School of Art Artists in Residence program (AIR) 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. Residency artists are an energizing and crucial component of the creative life on our campus. The artists interact with the local creative community while developing a self- directed studio practice. This includes giving lectures to PrattMWP students, and teaching a community arts education class while being involved in select MWPAI public programs.
Artists receive financial support, housing, meals, a studio and an exhibition opportunity.
The 2019/20 AIR application will open in December 2019.
Disciplines rotate each academic year. An AIR could be accepted in two of the following media in future calls: Painting/Drawing, Ceramics, Jewelry/Metals, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Communications Design, and Video. Please check back each year.
