CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: RIT glass-studio residency offers honorarium, facilities access, studio space, and paid teaching opportunity

Looking for an opportunity to pursue glass-related research, have unlimited access to a high-level glass studio, and be part of a unique community of glass artists and students? There's still time to apply to be the Glass Studio Resident at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York. The position runs from August 15, 2020, through May 15, 2021, and offers access to the RIT hot and flame shops, cold-working and mold-making studios, as well as a wide range of kiln equipment. 

Multi-media artists should know that there are also opportunities to work across other RIT School of American Craft departments, and even across the wide range of university programs at this major research institution. The position comes with a $4,000 honorarium as well as opportunities for paid teaching positions.

In return, the successful candidate will be invited to take part in all aspects of the graduate and undergraduate glass programs, from critiques to visiting-artist lectures; from regular studio clean-ups to weekly program meetings; and even pitching in on the annual glass-pumpkin fundraiser.

The February 1st deadline to apply is fast approaching. Applicants should submit a copy of their resume, a cover letter, ten digital images of work, and two references. The decision will be announced on March 15, 2020.
