Alfred University’s Institute for Electronic Arts has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the New York State Council on the Arts for the purpose of providing residencies for guest artists to visit the Alfred University campus.

The grant will support the Institute’s guest residencies in 2018 and will continue IEA support from the State Council on the Arts dating back more than a dozen years. The IEA provides residences to artists to work in Alfred University’s state-of-the-art facilities and programs, which include traditional printmaking, new media systems, and emerging art studio technologies. Residents will have access to equipment, technical assistance, travel, housing, and materials, in addition to a stipend.

Alfred University’s Institute for Electronic Arts was established in 1997 to focus on the development of electronic imaging studios, to sponsor cross-disciplinary work, and to sponsor interactive artist residencies for the promotion of professional dialogues. The Institute is part of the University’s world renowned School of Art and Design.
