The WSU Harvester Launch Artist in Residence is designed for emerging artists the summer immediately following their completion of BFA or MFA program. The $1000 honorarium is awarded by nomination only. The Launch AiR works as a studio assistant to the Riverfest Harvester Arts AiR and receives hands-on experience with Harvester Arts’ visiting artists. This year’s Launch AiR will extend into the Fall due to COVID-19 disruptions but Amy will continue to work with Riverfest AiR Factory Obscura throughout 2020 and into 2021.
As part of the Launch award, Amy will also receive a scholarship to Harvester Arts’ Artist INC professional development program.
