Pacifico SilanoPhotography major from the Class of ’08, was selected as one of a dozen Light Work Artist-In-Residence for 2016.

Every year Light Work, which provides support to emerging and under-represented artists working in the media of photography and digital imaging, invites between twelve and fifteen artists to come to Syracuse to devote one month to creative projects. The residency includes a $5,000 stipend, a furnished artist apartment, 24-hour access to our state-of-the-art facilities, and generous staff support. Work by each Artist-in-Residence is published in a special edition of Contact Sheet: The Light Work Annual along with an essay commissioned by Light Work. Work by former Artists-in-Residence is also part of the Light Work Collection. Over 400 artists have participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program, and many of them have gone on to achieve international acclaim.

Congratulations, Pacifico!
