The Meridian Scholar Program is an innovative program that invites visiting artists and scholars for a 10-day residency to work directly with UT students in the creation of a dynamic print-based art project. This unique program was designed as an atelier, an interdisciplinary workshop where students and master artists explore materials, processes and technology. Students have the opportunity to participate in the Meridian Scholar Program as a course, earning credits towards their degree. It is in this spirit of true research, applied innovation and scholarship that we build invaluable connections between our students and the world of contemporary art. (The Meridian Scholar program is formerly known as STUDIO-f).
Visiting artists included Sam Gilliam, Joyce J. Scott, Roberto Juarez, Miriam Schapiro, Audrey Flack, Pedro Perez, Ed Paschke, Willy Heeks, John Walker, Tom Lieber, Larry Poons, Sam Messer, James McGarrell, Robert Rahway Zakanitch, Stephen Greene, Katherine Porter, Hollis Sigler, Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid and Louisa Chase.
Meridian Scholar Program is located in Bailey Arts Studio, 310 N. Boulevard, at The University of Tampa campus in downtown Tampa. For more information or to receive a schedule of upcoming events, please contact Jocelyn Boigenzahn at (813) 253-6217, firstname.lastname@example.org.
