The AIR program is designed for emerging artists or recent visual arts MFA graduates interested in art education on both a community and college level while receiving support to develop a vibrant, self-directed studio practice. Programming includes presenting a lecture to PrattMWP students and the public, teaching community arts education classes, holding a public open studio event, and designing and implementing accessible community projects at the Museum of Art. Artists receive financial support, paid teaching, housing, meals, studio, and two-person exhibition in the museum’s PrattMWP Gallery. Disciplines rotate each year.

International artists are responsible for obtaining a visa, as well as necessary documentation for travel and employment within the United States. MWPAI can provide formal letters of invitation and additional support information requested, however it is the artist's responsibility to carry the burden of the visa acquisition process through the appropriate channels. Please consider the timeline for making such arrangements. Artists must be reasonably fluent in English. MWPAI is a recognized program by International Arts & Artists, a non-profit organization that sponsors J-1 visas for international interns, trainees, and scholars participating in cultural exchanges with American arts institutions.
