First announced by Chancellor Alexander Cartwright in February 2018, MU’s Artist in Residence (AIR) is a collaboration of the Museum of Art and Archaeology, School of Music, Department of Theatre, School of Visual Studies, and Department of English. Working together, these principals have focused the program’s mission to that of inviting established and emerging artists to MU to celebrate the arts and cultivate creativity across disciplines. The AIR helps to position MU as a national leader in supporting the arts and building a creative economy.

"Our Artist in Residence program brings both nationally recognized and emerging artists to campus for high-visibility events. The program celebrates artists already on campus and in our community and provides students new experiential learning opportunities."
