Membership Overview

The Studio Program offers four distinct options for memberships to help fulfill your dreams.

Dreamer

The Dreamer membership is obtained via our competitive selection process. Any chosen local emerging artist or recent art school graduate over the age of 21, not currently in a degree-granting program, can apply. Once selected, Dreamers can have a partially-subsidized studio space for one year. Near the end of the one-year term, Dreamers may apply to renew for an additional year.

Three year membership.

The Rock Star membership is obtained via our competitive selection process. Any chosen local established artist with a studio practice can have a fully-subsidized studio space for one year with membership fees waived in-lieu of artwork exchanges. Each studio features a gallery wall to display your work.  Near the end of the one-year term, artists may apply to renew for an additional year.

The Nomad membership is obtained via our competitive selection process. Any local established artist, curator, chef, furniture designer, or creative professional may request a partially- or fully-subsidized pop-up exhibition space in one of our vacant retail storefronts for a short-term basis, up to two months.  Affordable payment or artwork exchange options are available. 

One year membership.

PARTNER

The Partner membership allows universities, museums and institutions to provide visiting artists with partially- or fully-subsidized short-term studio space or pop-up exhibition spaces.  Together, we can develop new ways to tailor our program to support the artist and academic communities in New York City.  To start a dialogue, simply visit our contact page.
