Open to both established and emerging artists and designers, the Roland J. Witt Residency encourages student engagement and cross-campus collaboration as part of the creative process. The residency includes a $20,000 honorarium, housing, studio space, and up to $4,000 funding support for project materials. A singular feature of this year’s Residency is the Stamps School’s collaboration with the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) who will provide a highly visible gallery in the museum as an installation and workspace for the Witt Resident.
The collaboration makes visible to the campus and community the practice and process of making art: it reveals the artwork’s narrative arc-- from its production to its installation and then display in the museum gallery. The museum gallery becomes the site of deep investigation by and with an artist about the artists’ studio and its nature, his/her material practice, and curatorial decisions around the works’ presentation to the public.
