The Penn State Altoona Visual Art Studies program invites applications for its Spring 2024 Emerging Artist in Residence.
The residency is designed to offer an emerging artist substantial time to develop a new or existing body of work. Duties include teaching one digital media course during the Spring 2024 semester (January 8 - May 4, 2024), serving as a resource to Visual Art Studies students, and mounting a solo exhibition in one of our campus galleries.
This year’s residency seeks a studio artist with an emphasis in digital media. Animation, motion graphics, graphic design, sound, video, film, and illustration will all be considered. Evidence of innovative and contemporary approaches to digital media, along with cohesive conceptual themes, should be present in the work included in the portfolio portion of the application.
The Emerging Artist we seek will present a promising record of exhibitions and selection will be based on the quality of the work submitted, as determined by the selection committee. An MFA or master's-level degree in digital media or a related field, earned within the past five years (2018-2023), is required. University-level teaching experience is preferred.
This position offers a salary of $15,000 (benefits are not included). For questions about the position please contact Associate Teaching Professor Susan Marie Brundage at email@example.com
