The Summer Institute for Visual Arts (SIVA) is currently seeking applications for its summer 2016 Visiting Artist Fellowships. SIVA offers four Visiting Artist Fellowships along side a Master of Arts in Studio Art and Theory (MART) program.
Fellowships are awarded to a diverse group of international artists representing a range of practices and disciplines. During their five-week residency, each visiting artist fellow is provided housing, a private studio space, access to the university’s resources and facilities, and a substantial stipend. In turn, visiting artist fellows are mentors in the MART program. They are responsible for a visiting artist studio course and play an active role in SIVA through program-wide studio visits, workshops, reviews and lectures.

Fellows additionally receive on-campus housing, a private studio and exhibition opportunities when available. Fellows are responsible for their own travel expenses and are expected to be in residence full-time.
