In 2009, Dr. Arthur L. Prensky established The Arthur L. and Sheila Prensky Visiting Artist Endowment Fund to bring distinguished artists to the Sam Fox School for artist residencies at Island Press. Prensky Island Press Visiting Artists work closely with faculty, graduate students, and advanced undergraduate students through a variety of programs and interactions to create innovative prints that garner a critical response from national and international audiences. The inaugural Arthur L. and Sheila Prensky Island Press Visiting Artist was Ann Hamilton (2010). Subsequent Prensky Island Press Visiting Artists have included Radcliffe Bailey, Trenton Doyle Hancock, James Siena, Nina Katchadourian, Shaun O'Dell, Lisa Sanditz, Henrik Drescher, Orly Genger, and Beverly Semmes.
