Artist Resources

At the core of LMCC’s activities, lie the programs that directly provide artists with networks, resources, and support. The combination of LMCC’s investment in individual artists and small arts groups, our robust network of partners, and our integrated approach to fostering local neighborhood efforts, aims to spark public imagination as well as inspire personal attachment and investment in NYC’s communities. We believe that when artists receive support from both the public and private sectors, they can catalyze social inclusion, environmental sustainability, and economic vitality in the communities where they live and work. Therefore, LMCC invites individual artists and organizations to participate in our suite of Manhattan Arts Grants, Artist Residency, and Professional Development programs so that they may connect with peers and industry leaders, advance their creative practice, develop specific projects, and acquire a set of financial planning and business strategy tools to carry with them into the future.

Each year, we award over $500,000 in grants, provide 500 individuals with professional development skills and access to business leaders and arts professionals, place 100 individuals and arts groups in our studio residency programs, as well as present over 60 days of free cultural experiences for the public to enjoy.


 This week's LMCC #tbt features @sonyasklaroff  Sonya Sklaroff was a participant of LMCC’s The World Views Project 1998-1999 in Tower One of the World Trade Center on the 91st floor. Inspired by the epic view of the city below, Sklaroff's paintings during her six month residency explored her vantage point looking out at the city from immense vertical windows, observing the patterns of the city, the sheer magnitude of the world below, and the vastness of the sky above. Sklaroff's paintings today continue this exploration of light, color, shadow, and patterns of the city, but are focused on a more personal level. Her point of view is more intimate, concentrating on the city at eye level, or from a lower vantage point so that she can record a more unique viewpoint. Her work now ranges from street scenes, mom and pop shops, to rooftop city views.  A Solo Exhibition of new paintings by Sonya Sklaroff “Passages” is on view at Galerie Anagama in Versailles, France From September 24 to October 22, 2017.
