Artists In Residence (AIR)

P+D classroom

EJ Hauser in Painting III

As active professionals in the field, the resident faculty in painting and drawing is deeply engaged in a contemporary artistic dialog. The Artist-in-Residence Program enriches the student experience further by regularly bringing new artists from outside the university who are active in the contemporary gallery and museum arenas.

The Artist-in-Residence Program was initiated in 1982. Each semester an invited resident artist teaches both undergraduate and graduate level courses in the Painting & Drawing curriculum. The AIR program is highly successful in making a direct connection to the marketplace of ideas that surrounds art centers such as New York City, Chicago, and LA. The AIR invited to campus represent a spectrum of current sensibilities in painting and drawing holding sway in the art world today.

The AIR is integral to the core of the graduate student experience, and adds significantly to the vitality and vibrancy of the dialogue among faculty and students of the School of Art.
