The Frank-Ratchye Studio for Creative Inquiry is a flexible laboratory for new modes of arts research, production and presentation. Founded in 1989 within the College of Fine Arts at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), the Studio serves as a locus for hybrid enterprises on the CMU campus, the Pittsburgh region, and internationally.

The Studio’s mission is to support atypical, anti-disciplinary, and inter-institutional research projects at the intersections of arts, sciences, technology and culture.

Its current emphasis on new-media arts builds on more than two decades of experience hosting interdisciplinary artists in an environment enriched by world-class science and engineering departments. Through its residencies and outreach programs, the Studio provides opportunities for learning, dialogue and research that lead to innovative breakthroughs, new policies, and the redefinition of the role of artists in a quickly changing world.
