Artists Wanted for Open Studios

The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) is seeking local artists for the Open Studios Program. Successful candidates will have extensive background working predominately in three-dimensional materials and processes. The studios are open for the public to interact informally with the working artist during regular museum hours- teaching experience is a plus. Artists are highly encouraged to visit the Open Studios at MAD to fully understand the structure of the program.

The positions are temporary adjunct part-time. This residency will run for approximately 4 months; each artist will work one regularly scheduled day/week, with select additional evening shifts. Participating artists will also have the opportunity to display their work in the museum’s 6th floor vitrines for the duration of their own residency as well as the following 4 months. Each artist will also have their bio and two images of their work featured on MAD’s website.
