Artists in Residence Funded by the Wihuri Foundation

The University of Lapland began its Artist in Residence scheme in the autumn of 1995 in collaboration with the Jenny and Antti Wihuri Foundation. The artist is invited by the Faculty of Art and Design together with the arts division of the Foundation. The artist works on his or her own art projects in the Faculty. Most of the visiting artists also hold exhibitions at the Faculty galleries or in other exhibition spaces in Rovaniemi.
