MWPAI on the lookout for Artists-in-Residence


Applications are now being accepted for the Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Artists-in-Residence program.

AIR is an education-based residency which allows two emerging artists from different disciplines to live and work on the MWPAI and PrattMWP College of Art and Design campus for one academic year. 

Applications may be submitted now through Monday, Feb 25.

Applications for the 2019-20 AIR program are now being accepted from national and international artists in photography or painting/drawing. Disciplines rotate each academic year.

The AIR program is designed for emerging artists or recent visual arts master’s of fine arts degree graduates interested in art education on both a community and college level while receiving support to develop a vibrant, self-directed studio practice. Programming includes presenting a lecture to PrattMWP students and the public, teaching community arts education classes, holding a public open-studio event and designing and implementing accessible community projects at the Museum of Art.

Artists receive financial support, housing, meals, studio and a two-person exhibition in the Museum of Art PrattMWP gallery.

Complete information and the online application may be found at

The 2019-20 AIR program is made possible with the support of Francis J. and Ruth A. Pugliese and Sunithi S. Bajekal.
