Benjamin Kelley is the Director of Fabrication Studios and Adjunct Faculty at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Kelley received a BFA in Sculpture from Central Michigan University in 2008 and an MFA from the Rinehart School of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2010. Driven by the smell of oak, the elegance of precision, and the cult of commodity, Kelley re-contextualizes found objects and alters their orientation with fabricated structures. Exhibiting work locally and nationally, receiving the Toby Devan Lewis Fellowship and a two time Janet and Walter Sondheim finalist, Kelly is represented by CONNERSMITH in Washington DC.
