2018 Welcoming Campus Artist Residency Accepting Applications



The IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute (IAHI) will host two artists-in-residence during 2018. Residents will be provided an honorarium ($3000), a materials and installation budget ($8500), housing, and round trip airfare.

Residents will be responsible for developing a public artwork for the IUPUI campus during their residency. They will develop this work in consultation with the IAHI director and advisory team. During their residency, they will be responsible for 3-4 hours of studio visits at the Herron School of Art and Design and participate in two IAHI public programs (e.g. panel discussion). Depending on the nature of the work, artworks may not be complete during the residency. In this case, residents may need to return to IUPUI for its installation.

The IAHI recognizes that public art practice takes many forms and encourages applicants to pursue a wide variety of approaches.

The IAHI Welcoming Campus Residencies are funded by the IUPUI Welcoming Campus Fund, the School of Engineering and Technology, and the Office of the Vice President for Research. They are offered in collaboration with the City State residency program. City State is a collaboration of Central State Mansion, the IAHI, Ignition Arts, iMOCA, People for Urban Progress, and PRINTtEXT.


Applications are due on October 31, 2017.


Apply via an online form with uploaded attachments here.  Applications will only be taken through this online method.


The application review process consists of an online review followed by in-person panel meeting. The panel will create a shortlist of candidates to be interviewed via teleconference. Interviews will take place in December, 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by December 31.

The selection panel consists of members of the Indianapolis community and IUPUI faculty and staff.


Launched in spring of 2016, the Welcoming Campus Initiative has provided a springboard for transforming IUPUI into a more inspiring destination for faculty, staff, students, and visitors.

With taskforces, focus groups, and town hall meetings, we have sought to answer the question, “How can we make IUPUI a more welcoming campus?”

The Welcoming Campus Initiative is tied to IUPUI’s strategic goals outlined in Our Commitment to Indiana and Beyond: IUPUI Strategic Plan, especially our efforts to support student success, faculty and staff development, and community engagement.


Established in 2012, the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute (IAHI) supports research and creative activity across the Indianapolis University-Purdue University, Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus; serves as a campus liaison to the central Indiana community; and fosters ongoing partnerships and ventures that advance arts and humanities endeavors at IUPUI and in Indianapolis.

The IAHI showcases and promotes the major intellectual and scholarly contributions that IUPUI faculty members from across the disciplines are making in the arts and humanities, serving individual faculty members, groups, and interdisciplinary teams through grant programs, workshops, symposia, and research collaborations.

As an urban-based institute, the IAHI works closely with the Indianapolis community, connecting local institutions and residents with IUPUI. Working with Indianapolis’ diverse publics to create engaging new programming and forums for dialogue, creativity, and experiment, the IAHI also facilitates experiential and service learning opportunities for faculty-led student teams in academic programs across campus.

The IAHI seeks to become a national model for an urban-based arts and humanities institute that is both a leader in academic research and creative activity and an active participant in its community.

The IAHI is a collaboration between the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the School of Liberal Arts, the Herron School of Art and Design, the IUPUI Library, the School of Informatics and Computing, the School of Engineering and Technology, the School of Science, and the School of Medicine.
