MARN Mentors

Why MARNmentors?

MARN has created MARNmentors for visual artists, literary artists, filmmakers, composers and arts administrators in order to strengthen the network of support for artists, provide in-depth professional resources and contribute to the health of Wisconsin's arts community. MARN serves as a liaison between established working artists and administrators and those who are pursuing a career in the arts. Several established arts professionals with a proven track record of professionalism and who have a desire to pass on their knowledge to developing artists, have been selected as Mentors. 

Selected Protégées experience the following benefits: 

  • Work closely with a respected and professional creative
  • Receive free admitance to Professional Development Workshops
  • Receive a MARN membership
  • Be part of the MARNmentors Exhibition
  • Are published in the MARNmentors catalogue
  • Become a MARNmentors alumni
