1. Congratulations and welcome to the five new UChicago Arts and Public Life initiative’s 2012-13 artists-in-residence program. 
During a 10-month residency, the artists will have access to UChicago’s world-class academic and research resources, as well as studio space, a woodshop, and program and exhibition space at the Washington Park Arts Incubator. We’re so excited to see them all on campus this coming year.

Young, whose work blends phonetics, linguistics, hymns, jazz, and hip-hop to explore the politics and attributes of the African-American experience. Young’s work, which he calls “sunday mornin jook-joint,” merges spiritual and secular aesthetics with dramatic and comedic sensibilities.
