MAD is now accepting applications for the Artist Studios Program, offering studio space and financial support to one Artist Fellow and six Daily Residents for a six-month term, from August 2018 through January 2019.
What is the Artist Studios Program?
Reflecting MAD’s commitment to living artists and to contemporary craft practice, the Artist Studios Program hosts artists and designers daily in a live studio environment.
Since its founding in 2008, MAD’s Artist Studios Program has supported the careers of over 150 artists and designers.
What are the benefits of the Artist Studios Program?
The full-time Artist Fellow receives a $15,000 stipend and dedicated studio space, and the six Daily Residents receive a daily honorarium of $125 and shared studio space.
Residencies also include professional development and public programming opportunities, regular studio visits with museum staff and arts professionals, and continued engagement through the community of Artist Studios Program alumni.
