This Is America - Part 1

2023-24 Artists-in-Residence

Deeper relationships with artists lead to a better understanding of each other, the artistic work shared, and the world around us.

The Hop is committed to sponsoring rich, long-term collaborations with artists by inviting them to campus for longer periods and with greater frequency. While supporting their artistic endeavors as they develop new work, we are also given the opportunity to dive into their creative process and observe as they unpeel the world around us, offering us new ways to see, listen and love. Their engagement with faculty and students sheds new light on other fields of study and presents innovative ideas that bounce against disparate disciplines.
