Artist Residency Program


Artist Call


The School of Visual Art and Design at the University of South Carolina invites visual artists to submit applications for the spring session of the 2019 Artist Residency Program which is intended to address themes of environment and ecology. 

This theme was chosen to create and explore the connections between environmentally informed works of art and a city community. From simple inquiries, such as who has access to information about the environment, to deeper socio-economic concerns --- who can afford to be sustainable— we invite artists to respond to environmental questions while in residence at the SVAD studio. 

We believe that the 21st century artist works with multiple and varied materials, including film/video/new media, installation, and performance. We would like to see applications from artists who have new perspectives and creative approaches to relevant concepts and pending issues in environmental or ecological studies and the oftentimes tumultuous relationships between humans and the earth. By asking artists to challenge those relationships through visual means, a goal of this residency is to inspire dialogue between artist, artwork, and community.

Deadline to apply: January 15th, 2019​

The residency takes place at Stormwater Studios
