Windgate ITE is an intensive summer program in which the resident fellows explore deeper connections with the material of wood through research, exploration, and collaboration. Now in its twenty-fourth year, the Center awards eight prestigious fellowships from an international pool of applicants: a visual documentarian, a scholar, and six artists who work either solely in wood or who work with wood in combination with other materials.
Organized by The Center for Art in Wood, the residency is an intensive summer program in which the resident fellows live and work together at the University of the Arts, in downtown Philadelphia. The program welcomes international applicants and annually selects one documentarian, one scholar, five artists, and one student artist who work either solely in wood or who work with wood in combination with other materials. ITE is designed as a collegial experience and encourages an open exchange of creative and technical innovations. It runs from the first week of June through the first week of August and culminates in a group exhibition of the residents’ work at the Center.
