LMCC welcomes fourteen artists to its Workspace studio residency program. Workspace is a competitive nine-month studio residency program that focuses on creative practice development for emerging artists working across all disciplines. Based in studios at 101 Greenwich Street from September 2018 to June 2019, this year’s cohort includes choreographers, sculptors, poets, screenwriters, filmmakers, and interdisciplinary artists.
