Do you think art can change the world? Do you believe art can teach us more about our diverse society? Do you want a say in the kind of art STAMP collects and publicly displays? The Contemporary Art Purchasing Program (CAPP) is an art acquisition program led by students for students – this is your chance to make your mark and learn how contemporary art reflects the world around us!
WHY SHOULD YOU APPLY?
CAPP offers UMD graduate and undergraduate students, of all majors, a unique hands-on professional development opportunity. Anyone can apply from any major—we select six students every other year. Besides learning about artists working today, students will also gain firsthand experience with the business of art. This experience includes direct communication and negotiations with renowned artists, gallerists, museum directors and curators. Students will participate fully in the acquisition process, including but not limited to: visiting artist studios, gallery visits to Baltimore, D.C. and New York City, and presenting acquisition proposals to an advisory board of art professionals.
