After reviewing many outstanding applications, PCA&D's Fine Art Residency committee is pleased to announce that Jason Herr, class of 2016, was selected to be our first PCA&D Alumni Resident. He will be working in the  College's studio, printmaking lab and digital print lab to further his artistic projects.


“When I was attending PCA&D I was able to complete many projects using the media and tools available. However I didn’t have as much time as I would have liked to explore each one to its full potential. I would also use this opportunity to push my own work into a more unique and personal space by reexamining my thesis ideas and experimenting with new ways to express them. I will explore the different tools and media made available more thoroughly, and use the 3D workshop to make a few wood sculptures that would complement my 2D work,” said Jason Herr.
