LMCC empowers artists and small arts groups by offering space, financial resources, and professional and creative development opportunities. We support artists working in all disciplines in order to advance and sustain their practices and careers. Our public engagement initiatives — including the River To River Festival — engage, provoke, and transform audiences. We celebrate cultural experiences that are representative of all stages of the creative process and present them for free in unexpected places.

We work in partnership with artists, individuals, local organizations, and civic, corporate, and cultural leaders to build vibrant communities that are at the forefront of arts and culture. Together, we foster artistic growth and long-term sustainability that invigorate our diverse neighborhoods downtown and reach communities throughout Manhattan and the wider NYC metro region.

JOIN OUR ROBUST NETWORK of individuals from across the business and cultural sectors who share a passion for both the arts and the growing community in Lower Manhattan.
