Please help us continue to ensure New York City remains a place where artists and communities – in dialogue – create a more just, equitable, rich, and sustainable society.


As the cultural life force of Lower Manhattan, LMCC brings artists and communities together through rich artistic and cultural experiences:

  • LMCC's residencies have supported the practice and built community among thousands of artists.  
  • LMCC's grants support hundreds of local and neighborhood arts projects throughout Manhattan.
  • River To River is Downtown New York City’s completely free summer arts festival and a celebration of artistic and creative diversity all over Lower Manhattan.
  • The Arts Center at Governors Island is a home and creative incubator for artists and audiences on Governors Island. LMCC's Arts Center offers free public exhibitions, workshops, and programs on ecology, sustainability, and the environment.


LMCC's programs are always free and all are welcome. Your gift makes everything we do at LMCC possible. Thank you for your support! Choose your gift amount below.
