Each year, the Visual & Critical Studies department offers scholarship to one graduating senior, to spend 5 months as an artist in residence with the Leipzig International Art Program, in Leipzig, Germany.
LIA is a non-profit residency programme that fosters artists internationally by providing them with spacious studios and cultural support, as well as opportunities to exhibit both locally and abroad. The programme links young artists with the regional and international art community associated with the Spinnerei, connecting them with galleries, collectors, museums and art institutions.
