During the spring and summer of 1975 Wright State University organized a cooperative workshop/exhibitions program with three other schools and, in 1976, received the support of the National Endowment for the Arts. The program consisted of sending four prominent contemporary artists to the four colleges and universities during the 1976-1977 academic year. The artists selected to participate in the program were Siah Armajani of Minneapolis, Larry Bell of Taos, Lloyd Hamrol of Santa Monica, and Pat Steir of New York, each of whom works in diverse media and materials, and all of whom represent a range of artistic and aesthetic sensibilities. The four schools that participated in the program were California State University in Long Beach, the University of Kentucky in Lexington, Moore College of Art in Philadelphia, and Wright State University in Dayton, each of which maintains an art school, art department, and/or art gallery and each flexible enough to accommodate a prototypal program of this complexity.

The artists were sent independently to each school where they served as artists-in-residence for one week and where they involved students, faculty, and other interested persons in an activity of their own design. The activities were based upon the artist's concerns and were directed toward the sharing of their artistic working methodologies and sensibilities.
