This fellowship at Pilchuck allowed each artist in residence to discover and experience common issues related to pattern, scale, science and natural phenomena while exploring collaborative practices.

The Cohen Gallery seeks to create opportunities for students, faculty, and alumni to engage in the professional activities of curating and organizing art exhibitions from the ground up, thus providing valuable experience in the business aspects of art.

The gallery provides a supportive environment for exhibitions that serve regional constituencies, such as regional arts councils, public schools, and exchanges between regional art programs at the university level.
The Cohen Center for The Arts was created with a gift from University Trustee Michele and Martin Cohen, parents of Adam Cohen, AU Class of 2003. Contact director, Kala Stein, for more information.
