By Henry Luce III Center for the Arts and Religion
U.S. National Deadline: Annual Recurring May 15 –
The Henry Luce III Center for the Arts and Religion welcomes everyone
who is interested in the intersection of art and faith. We invite
established and emerging artists to apply to our Artist-in-Residence
program or make a proposal for a show in the Dadian Gallery. We also
have opportunities for pastors or theologians who wish to stay with us
for few weeks of sabbatical, reflecting on and engaging with the arts in
conversation with our faculty and staff.
A.I.R. PROGRAM & EXHIBITION
The Henry Luce III Center for the Arts and Religion (LCAR)
Artist-in-Residence program accepts applications from visual artists
seeking to create within the community of Wesley Theological Seminary.
Artists share space in a communal studio set in the seminary’s
instructional building, working directly with students by leading
practical art classes and community art projects.
Teaching an Arts Practicum in the medium of the artist’s choosing is
expected of all Artists-in-Residence. Opportunities for outreach to
churches and the wider community are also available to resident artists.
In alternating years, a group show in the Dadian Gallery is organized
to highlight the work of Artists-in-Residence. Artists also contribute
one piece of work to the seminary as part of their residencies,
providing a lasting contribution to our mission of making the arts an
integral part of theological education. Artists have the option of
taking one seminary class per semester in order to further explore the
union between theology and the arts.
Artists are provided with an honorarium of $1,500.00 per semester to
help cover their living expenses. A one-bedroom apartment on campus is
provided for artists living outside of the greater Washington, DC and
Baltimore region. Residencies can be for one calendar year, one academic
year, or one semester, depending of the needs of the program and the
availability of artists under consideration. Please be aware that we
schedule our artists one to two years in advance.
We are currently accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year.
The annual application deadline is May 15.

We regret that at this time, we are unable to process J-1 visas for international artist.
Wesley Theological Seminary serves future Christian leaders – aspiring
ministers, professionals, and young people, who yearn for a prophetic
voice in the public square and who seek a theological foundation for a
life of service and meaning.
