Summer Design Residency

The MDP studio has a different vibe over the Summer. We reconfigure the studio to house between 2-4 research projects led by Faculty and Visiting Researchers. Recent graduates doing the Post-Graduate Fellowship or Art Center Honors will be given additional space to continue their work. Students are taking undergraduate courses and students doing local off-campus internships may also continue to use their studio desks throughout the summer if they wish.

Exploratory Research

Students may work as research interns on one of the Summer Research Projects conducted in the Studio. These projects give students the unique opportunity to work collaboratively on creative research led by MDP faculty and visiting researchers from around the world. Student commitment is half-time, allowing time for reflection or independent work
