What Makes this event different?

A stipend of $19,000.

The Windgate Artist in Residence Program (WAIR), which is part of the School of Art+Design at Purchase College, is now accepting applications from contemporary artists and craftspeople who are working in the field broadly defined as applied design for Spring 2020 and Fall 2020, with application deadline on September 8, 2019.

This program supports the development of new work by designers and craft artists that can benefit from the educational and financial support of this grant. We are looking for risk-takers with strong technical expertise and conceptual rigor in one or more of the following areas of specialization: craft, applied design, environmental design, craft in the expanded form, social practices, and/or architecture.

The Windgate Artist in Residence will receive:
- a stipend of $19,000
- 24/7 studio access (located within the college’s Wood/Metal shops)
- on-campus accommodation
- an exhibition at the Richard and Dolly Maass Gallery.

The selected candidate is expected to live on campus for 4 months during the school semester (Spring 2020 or Fall 2020), to give a lecture on their work, and to deliver a community engagement event(s). Community engagements can include but are not limited to: a master class, teaching a workshop or co-teaching with an existing faculty member, delivering a performance, hosting a symposium, etc. Residents will have an exhibition 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 artist materials, travel, shipping, and living expenses for the duration of the residency.

Successful applicants will have a wide range of skillsets and will be eager to share their expertise in an academic studio environment. Chosen residents will be artists and practitioners who have a mature developed body of work, and proven experience of working directly with undergraduate and graduate students. The residents 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.
