The Department of Art’s Artist-in-Residence Program
The University has had a successful Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program since 1986. The program was originally designed for artists to create a work of art that would contribute to the campus collection. In 2015, our mission changed to foster temporary projects in the community. Artists also give a public presentation, engage with the USM and larger community, and work with art classes during their 7-week residency. Community residency projects since 2015 are featured chronologically below.
