In the Fall term the Department of Physics and Astronomy invites proposals for Artist-in-Residence projects that respond to Physics and Astronomy research from creative visual arts and music composition perspectives.
Artist residents embed themselves in the research lab/group to envision and produce a response that connects to the scientific research. Selected artists receive $500 at the end of the program. Reasonable material costs will also be covered.
Selected students spend time each week with the research group, and create a unique work, body of work, composition, or set of compositions in response that is presented at an exhibition/performance at the end of the spring term. View information on how to apply for the 2018 competition »
