ART SHAPE MAMMOTH is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization committed to connecting artists to new communities and supporting the development of artistic practice, dialogue, education, and research through creative public exchange.

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.
