U-M artist in residence program seeks candidates

By Staff

Applications are now being accepted for U-M's Roman J. Witt Artist in Residence program; the deadline is January 10, 2012.

The mission of the Roman J. Witt Residency Program is to support the production of new interdisciplinary work with assistance from the art and design community. The program awards up to 2 residencies per academic year for a visiting artist/designer to work at the University of MIchigan school of art and design to develop a new work in collaboration with students and faculty. The intersection with A&D may include workshops, critiques, and lectures. A centerpiece of the residency is the open studio, a centrally located studio space that is part of the school's main gallery where the resident carries out work collaboratively in a public domain. The residency is expected to culminate in the realization of the proposed work, as well as a presentation that summarizes the process and work accomplished.

Interviews with candidates are scheduled for March and April, while notification will occur next May. For more information, visit the Witt Residency website.
