Undergraduate Summer Program in Material Culture: Object Lab 10.0 Call for Applications

Object Lab 10.0 — Call for Participants

Dates: June 2-7, 2018
Location: The Chipstone Foundation, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Object Lab is a material studies program organized and funded by the Chipstone Foundation for third and fourth year undergraduate students. It exposes participants to new and diverse means of interacting with, studying, and analyzing, objects. Now in its tenth year, this program brings students together with a range of scholars from the fields of Art History, History, English, History of Science and Art, as well as practicing artists and manufacturers. Students will benefit not only from time with scholars, artists and manufacturers but also from hands-on exposure to objects from the collections of the Chipstone Foundation and other museums. To view videos of previous Object Labs please visit our Artbabble page at http://www.artbabble.org/topic/series/object-lab.

The Chipstone Foundation will cover program costs and travel expenses to and from Milwaukee for the nine selected participants.

If you are a third or fourth year undergraduate student who is interested in applying for the Object Lab 2018 program, please email a CV and cover letter (explaining your interest in object study) to Sarah Carter (scarter@chipstone.org) and Natalie Wright (nwright@chipstone.org) by March 1, 2018. Potential participants will be asked to complete a phone interview with Object Lab organizers the week of March 5th.
