MAD Announces Fall 2015 Artist Studios Participants

NYC exhibits. The Museum of Arts and Design is pleased to announce the newest selection of artists and designers in the Artist Studios. Open daily to the public, the Artist Studios host emerging and mid-career artists and designers as they produce work in a live studio environment, offering one of the Museum’s most unique educational experiences. Visitors are encouraged to inquire about artists’ processes, materials and concepts while they work. The Artist Studios program fosters dialogue and serves as a model of interactivity and innovative engagement that benefits both artists and museum visitors through making and conversations exploring the creative process.

Launched in 2008, the Artist Studios have welcomed more than 100 artists and continue to be one of the most popular components of the Museum’s visitor experience, drawing museumgoers to its 6th floor educational space for a hands-on, behind-the-scenes look at artistic practices.

“Education is at the heart of the Museum’s mission and a hallmark of the visitor experience,” said Glenn Adamson, Nanette L. Laitman Director. “The Artist Studios demystify artistic practice by inviting artists and designers to use the Museum as a laboratory for live interaction and creative experimentation. As a result, audiences of all backgrounds are able to marry their in-gallery experience with an understanding of the connection between maker, materials and process.”

Fall 2015 artists include Margaret Braun, Liz Collins, Kate Clements, Megan Canning, Maika’i Tubbs and Stephanie Beck. They are among the first group of artists and designers to be chosen by the Artist Studios Selection Committee, which includes Ken Amarit, artist and artist studio alumnus; Elissa Auther, Windgate Research Curator, Museum of Arts and Design; Carli Beseau, Manager of Interpretation, Museum of Arts and Design; Rama Chorpash, Director of Product Design, Associate Professor, Parsons; Lisa Dent, Director of Grant and Services, Creative Capital Foundation; Natalia Kakazawa, Assistant Director, Elisabeth Foundation Studios and artist; Ron Labaco, Marcia Docter Senior Curator, Museum of Arts and Design; Cathleen Lewis, V.P. of Education and Programs, Museum of Arts and Design; Cybele Maylone, Executive Director, Urban Glass; and Isa Rodrigues, Adult Programs Director, Textile Arts Center. This season’s committee reviewed the work of nearly 200 applicants.
