"Call for Artists: Second Annual Summer Residency Program"
2003-12-05 until 2004-03-01
Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Robert Rindler, Dean of The School of Art at The Cooper Union, today announces the second annual Summer Residency Program, June 5-26, 2004. The Program, specifically designed for emerging, mid-career and advanced professional artists who seek devoted time for their work, will have access to some of the finest art studios in New York City at The Cooper Union's Foundation Building. Approximately 30 professional artists from across the country will reside on the Manhattan campus to pursue on going work in painting and drawing, printmaking, and photography. Painting studios replete with skylights and labs outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment are exclusively accessible to all those accepted.

Residents of The Cooper Union Summer Residency Program have the option of participating in a wide range of seminars and events, including critiques. A staff of master technicians, who are also practicing artists, provide valuable technical support for all participants. The Program is non-credit bearing.

An impressive roster of Visiting Artists and Scholars will offer their insights into contemporary art issues through seminars and critiques. This year's list includes internationally renowned artists, Jim Dine and Terry Winters; award-winning abstract painter, Jacqueline Humphries; internationally exhibited photographer, Gary Schneider; Art Critic of The Village Voice, Vince Aletti; and Art Critic of the The New Yorker magazine, Peter Schjeldahl, The Cooper Union also provides participants with the unique opportunity to network with accomplished artists and gallerists. Additional events include visits to artists' studios, galleries and a group exhibition at The Cooper Union's prestigious Houghton Gallery.

"Since I work a full-time job, it is difficult for me to find time and space to paint," said last year's Residency attendee Brian Wendler. "The Cooper Union's Summer Residency Program is a unique opportunity for artists to work in New York City with access to large studios. The program provided me with the perfect escape so that I could truly devote myself to my art, benefit from the viewpoints of renowned professors and enjoy the vitality and culture of New York."

Tuition for this three-week Program is $2,500. On campus housing is available for $1,000. Funds raised by the Summer Residency Program directly support The Cooper Union's historic mission to provide full-tuition scholarships to its undergraduate BFA students. For nearly 145 years, Cooper Union graduates have made significant contributions in shaping and developing the world of art. Celebrated Cooper Union artists, who have worked in the Foundation Building's studios, include Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Audrey Flack, Tom Wesselmann, Alex Katz, Milton Glaser, Roy De Carava, Philip Taaffe, Donald Baechler and Julian LaVerdiere.
