Artist-in-Residence

Our Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program was established through the generosity of long-time patrons Dr. David and Mary Ann Cofrin and supported by the UWGB 1923 Fund.  Mary Ann Cofrin, the former Mary Ann Harn, fostered a relationship between the Harn Museum of Art on the University of Florida, Gainesville campus and the UWGB Art Program that became our AIR program.  The AIR is chosen by the UWGB Art Faculty from a pool of applicants who are recent MFA graduates from the U of F School of Art & Art History.  The AIR is given a generous stipend, maintains their studio practice in the art building, teaches two classes each semester, mounts an exhibition of their artwork in the Lawton Gallery, gives a presentation on their artwork, and keeps open studio hours so they can interact with students.
