The goal of this partnership is to foster greater mentorship and artistic development across our diverse student population for our most talented and motivated students. The program offers students the opportunity to showcase their work in an upscale office setting while providing the firm with modern, original artwork. The lawyers and clients at Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough, LLP have the option to purchase student works.
The Nelson Mullins Student Artist-in-Residency Program provides four talented students the opportunity to work as a cohort and alongside a faculty/instructor mentor to create large-scale works of art for the firm’s office space. Studio art and graphic design students are nominated each Spring semester by faculty and instructors for this Program. Selections are made in May of each year. Students work with the mentor and other nominees from May to April to create works of art to be displayed at the Firm. Installation of the artwork will occur the following May and the artwork is on display for a full year.
Each student artist will receive a $1,000 scholarship for participating in the Student Artist-in-Residency Program.
