The Bascom Winter Resident Artist Program, better known as the W.R.A.P., calls on Students or Faculty from the surrounding universities to submit site-specific installation proposals for The Bascom’s unique and beautiful Thompson Gallery.

The W.R.A.P. is designed to accommodate the winter break schedules of artists enrolled in degree programs, or higher education instructors. Students and faculty from across the southeast apply for this unique and challenging opportunity to live and work on The Bascom campus to design, build, and install their project proposal in only four weeks.

2020 - 2021 Winter Resident Artist: Kyle Kelsey

The recipient of the 2020 – 2021 Winter Resident Artist Program, Kyle Kelsey, is a second year MFA candidate at Western Carolina University. Kyle’s proposal for the program embraces the idea of play through an interactive multi-media installation involving works on canvas, video projection, and paper airplanes in flight. Please join The Bascom in welcoming Kyle to the plateau.

The Bascom would like to thank our Year Round Sponsors!
