The national Association of Performing Arts Presenters last year recognized SUNY Oswego for integrating the work of visiting artists with the academic program and the community, as Oswego advanced in the association’s Creative Campus Innovations grant competition.
Oswego’s proposal involved four artists who will participate in campus and community residencies during the 2011-12 season as part of a yearlong theme, “Telling Tales: The Arts and Discovery.”
Only one in five schools continued as semifinalists in the APAP program. Among 31 schools that remained in competition nationally were six New York institutions: Bard, Baruch and Skidmore colleges, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Syracuse University and SUNY Oswego.
