Cade Smith (he/they) is an emerging teaching artist and museum educator who aims for access and inquiry in their teaching. Bringing queer and disabled perspectives to arts and learning spaces, he is passionate about LGBTQ+ and disability arts and is excited to delve into outsider art at One Night Stand. As a multidisciplinary artist, Cade plays in and around the mediums of painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, installation and performance to explore queer identity, gender, disability and how those sometimes intersect with his faith. He earned both his Bachelor of Fine Arts and master’s in art and design education from Pratt Institute, where he minored in art history during his undergraduate program and focused on museum education and community arts during his graduate studies. He is currently based on occupied Lenape land in Long Island.
