School of Art MFA Student Grace Clark creates a social distance artist residency program called ‘Shelter.’

“Through Shelter, I aim to provide a way to help each other stay propelled, purposeful, and productive whether that looks like a creation of products or an introspective turn inward to focus on these complex feelings. If what you feel you need right now is a structured, resume building work time to keep moving and not fall behind, or on the other side, want to allow yourself the space to sit in emotions and process for a period of time, this residency can be whatever you decide you need as all experiences are valid and upon reflection encourage growth and depth. With your participation, I hope to empower people to embrace however their experience may look, gather evidence of what we can create and consider in times of crisis, and learn how through these struggles we can continue to grow and prosper. ”
