The Strathmore Fine Artist in Residence (Fine AIR) program cultivates local visual arts talent in the D.C.-metro area by pairing emerging artists with established professionals in related disciplines and mediums. Fine AIR residencies last six months, during which time participants build an audience, hone their craft, create a curatorial proposal and premiere a new body of work commissioned by Strathmore in the culminating Fine Artists in Residence Exhibition. The artist mentors provide pupils with career guidance, artistic critique and career development opportunities throughout the program.
