The Cooper Union is pleased to offer four artist residencies within the Summer Art Intensive Program. The fellowships will be given to outstanding visual artists who will spend one month, July 1-30, on-campus developing a new project in the Painting and Drawing department. The residency, which began in 1993, was created to support teaching artists whose professional practice in action, would contribute to the education of the summer program students. The residency provides spacious, sky lit professional studios, and an exhibition honoring the residents’ work. The exhibition will be organized by the Cooper Union immediately following the residency in conjunction with the pre-college program. The artists in residence will be asked to informally present their work to the summer program students and faculty, and are welcome to participate in guest lectures, critiques, and other events.
Please note, we are unable to provide housing, material, or cash stipends.
