Columbia Law School’s Artist-in-Residence Program
Columbia Law School’s Artist-in-Residence Program was created to highlight the vibrancy and diversity of the Law School community and broaden representation among artists, media, and subject matter within the art collection.
About the Program
Recognizing the importance of the art and portraiture adorning the halls of its campus buildings, Columbia Law School’s Artist-in-Residence Program provides opportunities for artists to share their work and engage with the Law School community.
The ideal artist-in-residence will have developed a portfolio of work that demonstrates a mastery of one or more media, as well as a distinct style. While this residency is open to artists of all experience levels, preference will be given to those who are in the early to middle stages of their careers.
The selection committee is particularly interested in supporting artists from underrepresented backgrounds and/or who have connections to the communities surrounding Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus. The committee also expects to give special attention to proposals that make connections between the Law School’s history and the present day; draw attention to broad notions of justice and fairness; and/or otherwise address topics at the intersection of law and society.
Call for Proposals: 2021-2022
Interested artists should submit a brief proposal outlining the reasons for their interest and describing the project they intend to undertake during the residency, if selected. The proposal should be realistic in scope and scale, though projects of all types are welcome. Submissions need not conform to a particular artistic style or medium (including video, audio, and mixed-media).
Applications should include the following components:
Resume or CV, including contact information
Digital portfolio (submitted in a single PDF, if possible) highlighting no more than ten original works that represent the applicant’s style, quality, and progression over time
Please email email@example.com with questions.
Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. EDT on June 15, 2021 and should be submitted via this form. A selection will be announced before the end of July 2021.
