FURMAN UNIVERSITY - ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
The Artist in Residence program at Furman University awards one residency each academic year to an artist or designer interested in developing a body of work in collaboration with students and faculty at the University. While the length of residency is flexible, with a minimum of six weeks, we encourage artists to consider staying for a full semester term, and invite them to also teach an undergraduate foundations studio art course. If approved, the teaching artist or designer would receive additional compensation, according to current adjunct rates at the university. The residency culminates in a solo exhibition and presentation of the work produced over the residency period.
The True Inspiration Artist Residency is part of The Furman Advantage, a program that aims to build educational value through tailored student experiences. Through direct engagement and collaboration with practicing artists and designers, students gain valuable experiences that help shape their education. To witness and partake in the creation of a defined work from idea to realization is the centerpiece of the True Artist Residency.

The program's four tracks are Contemporary Art, Film + TV, Performing Arts, and Video Art.
