Year Program Founded 1995
Description of Program The Center for Art in Wood awards for seven fellowships for the annual Windgate ITE International Residency Program. The program selects from an international pool of applicants, one photojournalist, one scholar/educator, and five artists who work either solely in wood or who work with wood in combination with other materials. Additionally, an eigth fellowship will be awarded to a student.

Residents are able to pursue both individual and collaborative work that is explorative and experimental. The photojournalist will document the residents’ experience using the medium of their choice. As with the other residents, exploration and experimentation are encouraged and the photojournalist is free to pursue artistic as well as documentary projects. The scholar/educator joins the group for one week mid-residency to explore personal research, engage in open discussions; and conduct interviews with the residents about their backgrounds and experimentation during the residency. The intention for this exchange is to stimulate scholarly dialog amongst the residents as well as provide the basis for a written reflection.

The residency is comprised of an 8-week, interactive program during which the resident fellows live and work together at the University of the Arts (UArts), in Philadelphia, PA, US. The residency runs from June through the first week of August each year.

Conditions/Public Service Requirements Residents participate in several Center-sponsored educational events. All residents may be asked to donate a finished piece to the Center’s permanent museum collection, as selected by the Center’s Collection Advisory Committee.
