For artists interested in getting an MFA but have circumstances that prevent them from applying to a traditional two-year MFA program, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts is initiating a 26-month low residency program. Organizer Astrid Bowlby promises that the program will embrace digital technogy to foster community and dialog among students and faculty during the off-site periods. Visiting artists scheduled for the 2015 eight-week summer residency period include Mark Dion, Anoka Faruqee, Jane Irish, Titus Kaphar, Lynn Palewicz, and Shelley Spector. The deadline to apply is December 15.
