The Artist Studios host artists and designers daily as they produce their work in a live studio environment. Visitors to MAD meet working artists who openly welcome questions and dialogue, and discuss their processes, materials, and concepts with diverse members of the public. This program serves as an innovative model of interactivity and engagement that benefits local artists and Museum visitors through observation, making, and discussion of creative processes.
