The Ekard Artist-in-Residence program at Bucknell University was created to support the creative learning experiences of our students through innovative interactions with practicing artists.

Selected artists actively share their own studio methods and processes through master classes, presentations, workshops, studio visits, pop-up exhibitions, installations, or other experiences with students on our residential campus in Lewisburg, PA.

Artists are selected through a combination of invitation and proposal-based applications. We are especially interested in activities that will enhance — and may be integrated into — the studio art courses offered in our department. Proposed activities might also take a more open-ended or “one-off” form that allows for broader campus or community participation, possibly responding to—or framed within—a particular disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspective or challenge.

Our committee works with our visitors to facilitate the organizational, logistical, and financial resources necessary so that artists can focus on creating the best experience for our students and on their own creative growth and exploration. The Ekard Artist Residency provides travel funds, lodging, meals, a materials budget, and a generous honorarium commensurate with the level of engagement. Payment will be made upon the completion of the residency.

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
