Schwartz Artists in Residence

The Donna and Marvin Schwartz Foundation Artist-in-Residence program at Emory seeks to increase substantially the depth, diversity, and profile of performing arts education in the Emory and greater-Atlanta communities by providing opportunities for meaningful contact with performing artists, composers, and art scholars from throughout the world.

Artists whose work reflects international and diverse cultural dimensions are engaged for extended periods of time during which they provide Emory and Atlanta-area students with teaching, master classes, lectures, and demonstrations alongside a public performance of their work.
