The Stamps School of Art and Design at the University of Michigan is accepting applications for its Roman J. Witt Residency Program.
The annual program supports the production of new artistic work by a visiting artist/designer through a one-year residency that allows the artist to work at the school and collaborate with students and faculty.
Witt Residents receive an honorarium of $20,000 for up to twelve weeks in residence served over an academic year. The artist-in-residence will be provided with housing, studio space, and up to $4,000 in funding support for project materials. 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.
The residency is open to both established and emerging artists/designers. Ideal candidates will value collaboration, have good social and communication skills, and be interested in generating creative partnerships across disciplines.
A $10 application fee to offset the cost of media uploads and storage is required at the time of submission.
See the Stamps website for complete program guideline, information about last year’s resident, and application procedures.
