EAR Program

Program Description

The Emerging Artist in Residence Program at Millersville University is a unique residency opportunity open to emerging artists who have completed their undergraduate degree and are seeking opportunities that will allow them to further their experience and concentrate on their art practice for a period of up to one year. During the residency, the EAR will have complete access to various studios and equipment as well as the university library.  They will also participate in and assist the advanced classes in their respective area, and will have the opportunity to meet with fellow residents and faculty for critiques and discussions.  The residency will culminate in a spring group exhibition in Millersville's Sykes Gallery.

In any studio area the EAR is expected to assist the professor who oversees that area with studio maintenance and general skilled support in classes as arranged with the individual faculty member.  The EAR will provide 12-15 hours per week of studio assistance.
