The Guild of Scenic Artists was formed by Scenics, for Scenics, to provide the power of community to help artists thrive.

The Guild of Scenic Artists was founded in 2016 by five colleagues who saw that other industries were benefiting from associations that connected their constituents, yet no such association existed for the thousands of Scenic Artists that work across the country in a wide variety of industries.

The Guild is open to all professional Scenic Artists, whether it’s their first day in the shop or they’ve been holding a bamboo for 30 years. No matter how they came to the industry, the Guild aims for each member to find a true home in this community of their peers.
