ITE International Residency

We are pleased to host resident fellows for the annual Windgate ITE International Residency. Established in 1995, the ITE program is designed as a collegial experience, which encourages an open exchange of creative and technical innovations. Residents are able to pursue both individual and collaborative work that is explorative and experimental. The interactive program runs in conjunction with the low-residency MFA Studio Art for an 8-week semester. We are privileged to have the opportunity to be a part of such a prestigious program and for our students to interact with the participating artists. This year Julia Harrison and Adrien Segal will be joining us.

Adrien Segal is an artist with a degree in furniture design and woodworking from California College of the Arts. Her work integrates scientific research, data visualization, aesthetic interpretation, and materiality as a means to reconcile scientific conventions of reason with an intuitive sensory experience. Adrien’s past Residency experience includes the Oregon College of Art and Craft, the Bunnell Art Center in Homer, AK, and most recently at Autodesk in San Francisco. In addition to teaching, she pursues a creative practice out of her studio on the former Naval Base in Alameda, CA.
