Wanlass Artist in Residence

Wanlass Artist in Residence Candice Lin working

The Wanlass Artist in Residence is Occidental’s semester-long residency program that allows an artist to investigate aspects of their practice and share it with the College campus-wide.

The program encourages cross-campus collaboration and thoughtful sustained interaction between artist and students. The Wanlass Artist in Residence Program is made possible by generous support from the Kathryn Caine Wanlass Charitable Foundation.
