MAD is accepting applications for the Artist Studios program, which provides studio space and financial support to one full-time fellow and six daily residents for a six-month term, from August 2019 through January 2020.

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 an open studio environment.

Since its founding in 2008, MAD’s Artist Studios program has supported the careers of over 160 artists and designers. 

What are the benefits of the Artist Studios program?

The full-time MAD Artist Fellow receives a $15,000 stipend and dedicated studio space. The six residents receive a daily honorarium of $125 and shared studio space for use one day per week.

The program also includes professional development and public programming opportunities, studio visits with Museum staff and arts professionals, and continued engagement through the community of Artist Studios program alumni.

Who can apply?

There are no fees or restrictions for applying for the daily residencies. Applicants for the MAD Artist Fellowship 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.
