The Museum of Arts and Design announces an open call for applications, seeking artists, designers, and makers for the Artist Studios, a unique educational demonstration space in the museum. The studios are open for the public to interact informally with artists during regular museum hours.
Through a rotation of makers working across disciplines in the Artist Studios, the museum fosters an open dialogue between maker and museum visitor, creating opportunities for audiences of all backgrounds to strengthen and enrich their personal connection to the processes and techniques of contemporary creativity. This program aspires to provide learning, dialogue and participation for the museum visitor while providing a platform for emerging and mid-career artists.
What past participants have to say about their Artist Studio experience:
“It has been an incredible experience for me and my art.”
“The experience has been uplifting and rewarding. Besides being able to create a body of artwork I have been able to network and extend my connections. While all this has been wonderful, one of the best aspects of the past six months has been the pleasant working environment created by such amazing people.”
“Being part of this talented group has added new inspiration to my work and given me a base outside of my own studio from which to work.”
“The Artist Studios program is one of the most amazing things about the museum, in my opinion. It really is touching people and adding value. Thanks for providing the opportunity and setting for this to happen and allowing me to be a part!”
The positions are paid, temporary part-time, and are scheduled for one day per week for a period of about four months. Participating artists will also have the opportunity to display their work in the museum’s 6th floor vitrines and have representation on the museum’s website.
