By facilitating research and supporting the creative process, Seattle University’s Visual Artist in Residence program (SUVAIR) fosters a unique environment for artists and students from which new ideas emerge that can change the way we see the world. SUVAIR provides artists with the valuable resources of time and space for open-ended investigation, experimentation and collaboration. By not formally requiring artists to showcase their work at the end of their residencies, the program gives artists the opportunity to push the boundaries of their own practice - free from the usual imperative to create a finished product. SUVAIR sparks collaborations that promote new approaches to arts education, foster community building and provide a catalyst for social change. SUVAIR creates a forum for dialogue between the public and the artist in residence through artist talks, a projects studio, open studio time, and other forms of public programming and materials.
SUVAIR is housed within the Seattle University campus with full access to the university library and facilities. The residency studio and offices are housed within two recently renovated buildings that once housed a streetcar turn-house. The Seattle University Fine Arts buildings are within the vibrant and bustling Capitol Hill neighborhood.
SUVAIR is a 6-month appointment beginning in July and ending January. Requirements include: -Slide Presentation -Studio Visit
And could include: -Exhibition of work -Conduct critique of art student work -Run practicum or seminar Seattle University’s unique Artist in Residence Program offers an opportunity for open-ended investigation, collaboration and experimentation within an academic setting. Talented artists are given the time and space they need to find inspiration and to influence other thinkers and young artists, advancing art and fostering cultural innovation.
