Each year, the Wilson College Fine Arts & Dance Department sponsors an artist residency program that provides free housing and studio space for a week. The residency takes place on Wilson’s beautiful campus in South Central Pennsylvania (see page 2 for more details). This year, we are accepting applications for:
• 2 Visual Artists (send 10 images for review with titles, media & date of creation)
• 2 Poets or Performance-based Writers (send 10 pages, titles & publication information)
• A Dance Company with no more than 5 members (send link to 10-minute video sample)
Artists-in-Residence are asked to hold an informal showing/presentation/reading of their work following the residency, inviting the greater campus community.
For questions, please contact: Philip Lindsey (plindsey [at] wilson.edu) for visual art, Megan Mizanty (megan.mizanty [at] wilson.edu) for dance, or Joshua Legg (joshua.legg [at] wilson.edu) for writing.

Applications will be reviewed/selected by the entire Fine Arts faculty of Wilson College.
Free housing and free studio space for 7 days.
Residencies available for: visual art, choreography or dance.
Residencies are for master prepared or professional artists.
Artists have 24-hour access to studios.
Visual artists are asked to donate a work produced during the residency to the Wilson College Teaching Collection.
Choreographers/dancers are asked to teach a master class to Wilson dance students.
Residencies are available to women and men.
Artists are housed in dorm rooms. Artists should bring linens (single bed) and toiletries. A fan is recommended.
Artists are responsible for their own art supplies.
Resident artists are responsible for their own food.
Dorms have kitchens, but no utensils.
There are four painting/drawing studios, a graphics lab, a wet darkroom, a dance studio, a proscenium stage, and an annex building that houses ceramics and printmaking studios.
The college sits on 350 acres of rolling PA countryside.
There are 50+ horses on campus, along with stables, arena, and pastures.
There is a working farm on campus (The Fulton Center for Sustainable Studies).
There will be a few students on campus, but summer course offerings are small and most students leave during the summer months, so long hours in the studio are possible without interruptions.
