Centraltrak, the University of Texas at Dallas Artists Residency Program, is an academic arts program offered by the School of the Arts and Humanities, bringing cutting-edge artists from across the globe to the only university-backed artists' residency in Texas. The Residency serves as a community center for broad intellectual discourse around the arts. Artists' studios, exhibitions, and symposia are made possible in part through the support of our Friends. We encourage you to support our organization and participate in the rich cultural offerings we host at Centraltrak.
