Application Deadline: April 10, 2020
Residency duration: July 10-31, 2020
Middle Tennessee State University
Middle Tennessee Visiting Artists Program is designed to support visiting artists’ research in an immersive studio environment. While being afforded valuable studio time, participating artists will gain teaching experience, working with other artists, students, and community members. Additionally, the artists will be actively contributing to the growth of the first permanent collection of art at MTSU. These contributions will create a visual record of the program and the artists’ interaction with the Middle Tennessee community. We will document the process, artwork, and activities so they continue to be employed as teaching tools and can be incorporated into broader discussions of artwork in the Murfreesboro and Middle Tennessee area. By stimulating dialogue between visiting artists, students, the arts community, and residents of the surrounding counties, we will demonstrate the importance of arts education and foster a culture of support and advocacy for the Arts in Tennessee.
Artists will be share a private studio within the printmaking facilities of Todd Hall. This studio features a large work table, several small working surfaces, wall space, screenprint table, small etching press and inking area. While participating artists need not engage specifically with printmaking, the space is equipped to serve those who might. Todd hall also features expansive sculpture and ceramics facilities, digital labs as well as book arts and letterpress. Regardless of project, the artist must be proficient on all equipment used and be completely self-sufficient.
