The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan is now accepting applications from both emerging and established artists/designers for the 2013–2014 Roman J. Witt Artist in Residence program. Awarding one residency per academic year, the program offers visiting artists/designers the opportunity to work at the school to develop a new work in collaboration with students and faculty.
Witt Residents receive an honorarium of 20,000 USD for twelve weeks in residence served over an academic year. There is flexibility in how the time in residence is apportioned. In addition to the honorarium, residents are provided with housing, and studio space.
The School encourages applications from individuals as well as from creative teams, however, please be advised that the resources listed above are finite, including the travel budget. If teams apply, the expectation is that the award will be shared between its members.
A centerpiece of the residency is the open studio, a centrally located studio space where the resident carries out work collaboratively in a public domain. 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 deadline for applications is January 11, 2013.
