In today’s opportunity blog, I focus on a single institution with multiple resources. Often museums have outlets for artists to build their knowledge, skills and careers. These can provide more than just enrichment, they are an opportunity to connect with an institution and network with established art world figures. One such place is the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. There are multiple opportunities for artists, and in fact I will also highlight a job listing at the museum itself.
MAD is currently accepting applications for its artist studio program which is virtual for the time being. This program encourages interaction between artists and museum visitors and offers a unique opportunity to work with a major museum. Visit the website for full details and to apply. Deadline for studio applications is November 29
MAD also has a number of online learning opportunities to help enrich your life and art career. Check out their library of educational videos or read through some of the resources listed in the online learning lab.
Finally, a somewhat unusual opportunity for this newsletter but an interesting one worth noting – MAD is currently searching for a Director of Human Resources and Diversity. While not a directly art related position, this is an opportunity to work for a major museum.
