Artist in Residence 

Mission
The Knox College Artist in Residence program began in 2009 with support from (Galesburg-based) Dick Blick Art Materials. The primary mission of the program is to enrich the educational experience of students through exposure to artists whose perspectives, sensibilities, or ways of working are not represented by regular faculty or curricula. An additional goal is to benefit the wider community through educational or creative opportunities, or to engage community constituents as potential participants in collaborative and community-based projects. Although the focus is not exclusively on community involvement, artists interested in engaging diverse communities are encouraged to apply.

Terms and Expectations
We are currently seeking applicants for Fall Term 2016—Sept. 1 - Dec. 2. Applicants should hold an MFA or record of equivalent professional achievement.

Resident Artists receive a stipend and are provided with accommodations and spacious studio. Non-teaching resident artists will be expected to spend a minimum of 5 days per week on site, and to be available 3-5 hours per week for advanced student critiques or informal interaction with students.

Additional compensation may be available to artists interested in designing and teaching a course relevant to their expertise. We are particularly looking for someone interested in teaching an introductory printmaking class for fall 2016. Teaching resident artists will spend an additional 5 hrs/wk in class, with additional informal time.

In each case, residents will be expected to produce a project or body of work, will be given a solo show and asked to donate one work produced during the residency to the college.

Benefits for the Artist

  • Stipend (and potential teaching compensation)
  • An opportunity for relatively undivided creative time in a quiet setting.
  • An opportunity to work with, or otherwise engage community members.
  • Potential teaching experience in a small, vital liberal arts college.
  • Great students, stimulating department.
  • Easy availability of materials through the Blick warehouse/discount store.
  • Great studio and gallery space in our off-campus alternative space.
