Please contact Visiting Assistant Professor, Megan Mizanty, to request an application (megan.mizanty@wilson.edu).  See attached flyer for additional information.   Applications are due April 1st.

 

Studios

-Additional studio space does exist on campus in the form of classroom space. These rooms can be easily converted into studio space. Let us know your needs, and we will do our best to accommodate you.

-Campus sits on over 200 acres of wooded forests and streams with late 19th century architecture (available for any site-specific work).
