International Visiting Artist Program

The International Visiting Artist Program (IVAP) is a collaboration between the Division of the Arts (DotA) and the International Division, which funds the program. This partnership, launched in the fall of 2019, supports short-term residences for international artists on campus. Through IVAP, the Division is able to bring visiting artists and their expertise into existing campus arts programs. Visiting artists expand students’ horizons and facilitate opportunities for future collaborations and careers abroad. IVAP artists might not otherwise have the chance to share their work in the United States, especially artists from less developed countries, those of marginalized identities, or those who provide a unique perspective to their field.
