Participants will collaboratively create a body of artwork for MOA's main indoor gallery through this immersive 8-week program, under the direction of a professional lead artist. Interns will collaborate and produce works utilizing the Design and Build public art process. From concept and proposal development, to creation and installation, students gain practical experience of the public art and artist process while learning about collaboration. Participants will also create individual thematic artworks, which will be exhibited in the MOA galleries along with the main body of collaborative pieces.

"Design and Build is highly competitive and affords undergraduate students the opportunity to work collaboratively under the direction of a master artist to create thematic, site-specific artworks," said MOA President and Executive Director Cynthia Madden Leitner. "It is among only a few programs of its kind in the world."

Since 1991, MOA's Design and Build program has provided an opportunity for young artists, students and creative minds to express their creativity in collaborative art projects. Assisted by professional artists in residence, Design and Build participants produce exciting and original site-specific art works for public spaces in the Denver metro area and MOA's indoor gallery. Interns find creative solutions to practical challenges as they master the skills to transform their creative ideas into finished pieces.

The program generates temporary public art and exhibitions while offering lessons in collaborative teamwork, problem-solving and aesthetic and technical considerations. From concept to installation, students must consider a variety of elements including environmental concern, safety, budgeting, project design, proposal writing, maquette making, construction and installation. Summer session Design and Build interns receive a paid stipend and college credit is also available.
