Become a MAD Artist-in-Residence

APPLICATIONS FOR THE ARTIST STUDIOS RESIDENCY ARE NOT BEING ACCEPTED AT THIS TIME.

Because the Museum has closed temporarily in adherence with the recommended city, state, and federal guidelines for minimizing the impact of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), ​we must now adjust the 2020 scheduling of our Artists Studios program. The application process for the Spring 2021 residency cycle will open in Fall 2020.

The Artist Studios at MAD is a community engagement and professional development program for contemporary artists and designers. Located on the sixth floor of the Museum and open daily to the public, artists-in-residence expand their creative practice on-site at MAD and engage with museum visitors.

Six artists and designers are chosen on a biannual basis for the six-month residency during which they receive a stipend and studio space in the Museum one day a week. In addition to their time in the studio, Artist Studios residents also participate in the Museum's education programs for all ages—from the Museum’s intergenerational Studio Sunday workshops to Thursday evening drop-in workshops inspired by artist-in-residences’ current work.

The MAD Artist Fellowship was established in 2016 to support the practice of emerging New York-based artists from historically underrepresented communities. Also selected biannually, the MAD Artist Fellow receives a dedicated studio space and a $15,000 stipend to work full-time at MAD.
