Open Call for the 2021 Burke Prize

The Burke Prize is a contemporary art prize for a new generation of artists working in a world of expanded media with a foundation in glass, fiber, clay, metal, or wood. Selected by a diverse and distinguished jury of curators, artists, and scholars through an open-call application process, the Burke Prize winner receives an unrestricted award of $50,000 and a major exhibition with a select group of finalists at the Museum.

One 2021 Burke Prize artist will also be selected for the biannual Burke Residency at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass. The Burke Residency artist will receive a one-month to five-week residency with all the benefits and opportunities awarded to artists selected for The Studio's Artist-in-Residence program.

Inspired by the disciplines that shaped the American studio craft movement, the Burke Prize is named for Marian and Russell Burke, two longtime supporters of MAD and passionate collectors of craft. Established in 2018, the Burke Prize honors exceptional artists, 45 or under, working in the United States whose highly accomplished work is conceptually rigorous, relevant, and pushes the boundaries of materials and creative processes.

Become a MAD Artist-in-Residence


Because the Museum has closed temporarily in adherence with the recommended city, state, and federal guidelines for minimizing the impact of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), ​we must now adjust the 2020 scheduling of our Artists Studios program. The application process for the Spring 2021 residency cycle will open in Fall 2020.
