Preference, however, will be given to artists working in mediums that further enhance our present curriculum, such as printmaking, bookmaking, drawing, fiber, VR, AR, AI, and complementary or multi-media formats. 

The Artist-in-Residence program is designed to support the development or continuation of new works by providing residents with dedicated time, specialized facilities, and a broad and potentially collaborative campus community.

Public exhibitions and events are subject to amendments based on the college calendar.
