Description

The artist residency is a critical and informative experience that is privileged to few, and revered by many. Creating work in a completely foreign environment can yield beautiful and new work that the artists could have never conceived of making. Artwork could be made about anything, but choosing a specific subject matter, or theme, can be very challenging. This difficulty arises from lack of knowledge, experience, or most importantly, being bored with one's surroundings. Artist residencies, often being in other countries and always providing a new atmosphere, can be a great way to jumpstart new artwork. Residencies are incredibly difficult to be accepted into, and are almost impossible to receive as a young artist. Seeing the value of this experience, faculty in the school of art at SFA put together a maymester trip to Iceland in conjunction with the Baer Art Center to provide an authentic residency experience.
