In August of 2021, McArthur Binion will return to the classroom as a mentor/instructor for the Fall Seminar program. Conceptualized as a 2-3 day graduate-style seminar, and housed in the Foundation’s Southwest Detroit location, 8 selected visual artists will participate in an intensive seminar and critique process with McArthur and other special guests. Participants will also be invited to participate in the Foundation’s studio residency program.
In the Fall of 2021, the Modern Ancient Brown Foundation will launch its inaugural Studio Residency Program with the intention of serving undergraduate art students in the Detroit area. 8 graduates from the Studio Seminar Program, will be granted the opportunity for a 3 month, all expenses paid, rotation in the Foundation’s studio space. Programmed in teams of 2, the 8 artists will rotate through the space in 3 months terms, while receiving a stipend for materials and studio supplies for a full calendar year. During this time, they are encouraged to produce new work, and gain mentorship from McArthur and other special guests as they further deepen their practice.
