The Division of the Arts’ Arts Residency Programs bring innovative and diverse artists to the University of Wisconsin–Madison for semester-long, academic year-long, and short-term residencies. Visiting artists bring their expertise to campus arts programs, open opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborations, expand students’ horizons, and engage with campus and Madison communities.
