MAD is now accepting applications for the Artist Studios program. The program provides studio space and financial support to one full-time fellow and six daily residents for a six-month term, from February through July 2019.
What is the Artist Studios program?
Reflecting MAD’s commitment to living artists and 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 MAD Fellow receives a $15,000 stipend and a dedicated studio space. The six residents receive a daily honorarium of $125 and a shared studio space for use one day per week. 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.

MAD Fellowship applicants must be based in New York City, be 30 years of age or younger at the start of their fellowship, identify racially and/or culturally with a historically underrepresented community, and demonstrate the need for financial assistance to advance their artistic careers.
