Bucknell University: Ekard Artist-in-Residence

The Ekard Artist-in-Residence provides students at Bucknell with opportunities to engage with and learn from accomplished artists through master classes, workshops, demonstrations and/or studio critiques in conjunction with the Department of Art & Art History.

Selected artists actively share their own studio methods and processes through master classes, presentations, workshops, studio visits, pop-up exhibitions, installations or other experiences with students on our residential campus in Lewisburg, Pa. Artists reside in Lewisburg, with prior stays ranging from a few days to a full year.

Selection Process

Artists are selected through a combination of invitation and proposal-based application. We are especially interested in activities that will enhance — and may be integrated into — the studio art courses offered in our department. Proposed activities might also take a more open-ended or “one-off” form that allows for broader campus or community participation, possibly responding to — or framed within — a particular disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective or challenge.

Compensation

Our directors work with our visitors to facilitate the organizational, logistical and financial resources necessary so that artists can focus on creating the best experience for our students and on their own creative growth and exploration. 
 
The Ekard Artist-in-Residence program provides travel funds, lodging, meals, a materials budget and a generous honorarium commensurate with the level of engagement. Payment will be made upon the completion of the residency.
