The Munson-Williams- Proctor Arts Institute School of Art Artists-in Residence program (AIR) allows two emerging artists from different disciplines to live and work on the MWPAI and PrattMWP College of Art & Design campus in Utica, NY for one academic year.

The AIR program is designed for emerging artists or recent visual arts MFA graduates. Residency artists are an energizing and crucial component of the creative life on our campus. The artists interact with the local creative community while developing a self- directed studio practice. This includes giving lectures to PrattMWP students, and teaching a community arts education class while being involved in select MWPAI public programs.

Artists receive financial support, housing, meals, a studio and an exhibition opportunity.
