ART SHAPE MAMMOTH is a creative community that cultivates radical societal transformation by supporting and performing activities that promote social justice, education, and environmental sustainability. ASM is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Our Programing Includes:

  • An Artist Representation Program providing thoughtfully curated exhibitions, residencies, and visiting artist opportunities for professional artists nationwide.

  • A Cross-Cultural Exchange Program, exhibiting artists across continents, providing artists opportunities for exhibiting, networking, teaching and learning from each other in communities across the world.

  • The Visitor Center Artist Camp near-wilderness residency site in the UP of Michigan where we host annual artist residencies and a Sustainable Practices Symposium, inviting artists to experience a practice focused on sustainability and self-sufficiency by locally-sourcing and hand-processing materials for woodworking, ceramics, and metal sculpture while living and working communally in a wilderness environment.

  • Traveling Experiential Workshops in metal-casting and ceramics based out of Providence, RI and Loveland, CO. Traveling workshops promote accessibility in the equipment-heavy arts of ceramic and metal sculpture by bringing foundry and kiln processes out in the open and allowing the community a simple, hands-on experience.

  • ONE Arts community gallery and workshop space in Burlington Vermont, providing the Old North End community with hands-on art programming for children and adults, community art events, and gallery exhibitions by local and national artists.

  • Flynndog, a community art space resulting from the adaptive reuse of an abandoned warehouse on Flynn Avenue in the South End Arts District of Burlington, VT in 1999, providing a unique space for traditional, non traditional, and site specific exhibitions that feature local and international artists.

Resourceful Artist Residency & Creative Retreat

July 27th - August 9th 2019

The official deadline has passed, but we still have a couple spots left for this amazing adventure! Two open spots in the Local Clay Workshop, and Two spots for Independent Projects.

Visitor Center Artist Camp is a short-term, low-impact Artist Residency site, situated on a 120-acre camp bordering the Ottawa National Forest in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We hold one Camp Session each summer, gathering artists from across the country in this beautiful wilderness environment.

In this historic rural area of the North Woods, we practice cooperative self-sufficiency as we explore sustainable art practices influenced by the surrounding environment, using local clay, salvaged materials, and locally- sourced and milled lumber to create what we want and build what we need.
