Spring 2013 Artist-in-Residence exhibition
The Center for New Art, the University Galleries, and the Undergraduate Art Department at William Paterson University request applications for an Artist in Residence Program. The successful recipient will receive access to our production facility and an honorarium of $2,000 plus a $1,000 budget for materials. Work produced during the residency will be exhibited at the University Galleries.
The WPU Artist in Residence Program provides access to our unique facility for the production of sculpture, installation, performance, 2D and 3D imaging, interactive media, augmented reality and others. Novel, innovative use of the facility is encouraged and theoretical conceptual projects welcome. This residency is designed to take advantage of our facility and the Lab at the Center for New Art. The Lab includes a Computer Numerical Control Mill, 2 rapid prototyping machines, a 3D Scanner, and a full digital computer lab with multiple softwares and 2D printers available. This residency is directed to a self-starting digital savant who can adopt and adapt to the available technologies. Limited production support is available (carried out by graduate assistants or undergraduate student interns). Work produced during the residency will be exhibited in a solo exhibition at the University Galleries.
