Underwritten by a grant from the Mellon Foundation, the Hurford Humanities Center has begun to develop a program for faculty across the three divisions to design and implement extended, multi-dimensional arts residencies in conjunction with their curricular and scholarly agendas. We thus invite you to attend the Mellon Arts Residency Workshop on Friday, April 24 from 10 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. in Stokes 102 (lunch provided), to learn more about this new source of funding.If possible, please RSVP by Wednesday April 22nd to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The workshop will be organized as a series of exchanges with faculty and artists who have already undertaken successful arts residencies across the curriculum. By “artist” we mean not only practitioners of traditional media—fine arts; music; creative writing; filmmaking—but also a spectrum of creators, including innovative practitioners of scientific narrative and imaging, creative non-fiction writers, performance artists, multimedia practitioners, illustrators, architects, philosophical fantasists, sonic fabulists, environmental bricoleurs, explorers of virtual media and spaces, “outsider” image-makers, adventurous curators, and others working at the frontiers of what we think of as “art.” The aim of these discussions is to expand upon this already rich array of experiences with fresh ideas for future collaborations among faculty, artists, and students that enhance teaching and scholarship.
Presenters: Suzanne Amador & Amy Slaton (work with “scientific imagist” Felice Frankel) Louis Messiah and Emma Lapsansky (documentary filmmaking course & workshop) Pato Hebert and Theresa Tensuan (art & activism residency in conjunction with “Arts of the Possible” course) John Muse (among friends visiting artist residencies/workshops)
