Artist in Residence

Artist in Residence Program

Emmanuel College awards a $1000 dollar stipend for supplies and up to an additional $1000 for travel reimbersment.

Artists have access to studios from 7:00 AM. to 11:00 PM and are provided with on-campus living quarters and a small, shared kitchen. Artists are responsible for their meals.

Artists donate 1 piece to the college at the end of the residency. This will become the colleges' permanent collections. They will be used as a teaching tool as well as to enrich the culture on campus.

Resident artists participate in Contemporary Art and Artistic Practice, an art history course offered to students during the summer residency. Artists are asked to devote three hours of a mutually agreed upon time to discussions about their own artistic practice with students enrolled in this course. The course focuses on the theories and methodologies that inform current contemporary art trends as they relate to the four Emmanuel College artists in residence.

Artists participate in the closing exhibition scheduled at the end of the residency. This is an opportunity for artists to exhibit the result of the residency work. The college community as well as the local creative community are invited to view the exhibition.

Artists are required to give a presentation of their work to Emmanuel students during the 2015-2016 academic year. The date will be coordinated with the faculty member in each area.
