About the Program:
WPI's Artist in Residency was created by Professor Joshua Rosenstock in 2011 in response to President Dennis Berkey's call for innovative proposals supporting the arts on campus. The goals of the program are to enliven WPI's public spaces, provide opportunities for WPI students and faculty to interface with renowned artists, and to foster dialogue among the diverse members of the WPI community about the relationship between science, technology, and the arts.
