Meet Our Summer 2022 Residential Fellows

Over the coming weeks, a new cohort of Lunder Institute resident fellows will converge in Waterville for a summer of community building and creative collaboration.

Established in 2021, Lunder Institute residential fellowships provide artists with spacious studios as well as opportunities for collaboration with Colby College faculty, students, and staff, the Waterville community, and the Maine arts community. This studio program, based out of the Greene Block + Studios in downtown Waterville, Maine, encompasses artists at all stages of their careers and working in a range of artistic disciplines and mediums. Resident fellows are provided with housing and a stipend, have access to Colby College campus facilities, and are in dialogue with local organizations and community members.

Joining the program this summer are textile artist, painter, and art educator Bryana Bibbs, the performance duo of Millie Kapp and Matt Shalzi, José Santiago Pérez, an artist and educator based in Chicago who traces his ancestry to the Nawat people of Kuscatlán (El Salvador), and Unyimeabasi Udoh, an artist who works across various media, including print, installation, sculpture, and embroidery.

Learn more about this group of artists and read their bios on our Summer 2022 Resident Fellows page.
