Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem’s visionary gift provides funding for a generous salary and benefits, as well as travel and academic creative enrichment funds. Visiting artists will be given a studio space and the opportunity to further develop their art practice in the community of students, other visiting artists and faculty members.

Candidates are required to have an MFA or equivalent professional experience, a well-developed portfolio in their area of specialization, and an exhibition record that is national and/or international in scope. They should be conversant in contemporary art issues and studio practices and enthusiastic about teaching in a diverse, multicultural setting.

The dates for this appointment are fall 2022 or spring 2023. Fall quarter begins September 19, 2022 and concludes December 9, 2022. Spring quarter begins March 30, 2023 and concludes June 15, 2023. Applicants must specify the quarter to which they are applying.
