Event History

Since its start in 2006, the Windgate Artist in Residence Program (WAIR) has hosted 29 residents; featured 40+ guest speakers, artists and critics for panel discussions and symposiums; and engaged with nearly 5,000 graduates of the School of Art+Design at Purchase College. The semester-long residency in applied design is now a fixture at Purchase College that has enriched the educational experience of our students, fostered the development of new work by resident artists, and furthered public awareness of the importance of craft and design.

The Windgate residency at SUNY Purchase College is a 4- month commitment. The selected candidate is expected to live on the campus for one semester (Fall 2021 or Spring 2022), give a lecture on their work, and deliver a master class to Purchase students. Residents also have an exhibit of their work in the semester following the residency at the Richard and Dolly Maass Gallery in the School of Art+Design.

The $19,000 stipend covers all necessary travel, artist materials, shipping, and living expenses for the duration of the residency.

A successful applicant will have a wide range of skill sets and be eager to share their expertise in an academic studio environment. Chosen residents will be artists and practitioners who have a mature and developed body of work, proven experience of working directly with undergraduate and graduate students. They will have proven technical proficiency in their field and be self-sufficient in operating related facilities.

United States residents and international residents are encouraged to apply; international residents are responsible for obtaining legal status for residency during the period. Students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate study are ineligible candidates. Purchase College is committed to fostering a diverse community of outstanding faculty, staff and students, as well as ensuring equal educational opportunity, employment, and access to service, programs, and activities, without regard to an individual’s race, color, national origin, religion, creed, age, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, familial status, pregnancy, predisposing genetic characteristics, military status, domestic violence victim status, or criminal conviction. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
