Artist Collective

About the MCBA Artist Collective

MCBA provides critical studio access through its Artist Collective, comprised of dedicated artists working in papermaking, paper marbling, letterpress printing, screen printing, bookbinding, and related arts. Artists must have sufficient training to work independently and safely in the studio areas they wish to utilize. Through this program, members have access to clean and well-maintained artist studios, rare equipment, exhibition opportunities, and participation in an eclectic community of fellow artists.

Artist Collective dues are $165/month, with a minimum six month commitment.

A limited number of short-term memberships (three to five month commitment) may be available, based on studio capacity. Short-term membership dues are $195 per month.
