Silver Art Projects introduces a new space for creative energy that contributes to the cultural vitality of lower Manhattan by providing ongoing sponsored studio space, artist mentorship, and a platform for artists.
Led by co-founders Cory Silverstein and Joshua Pulman, Silver Art Projects is a corporate social responsibility project established by Silverstein Properties, the real estate development firm that continues to lead in the revival of Lower Manhattan through the rebuilding of the World Trade Center.
Silver Art Projects will establish itself on the entire 50th floor of 3 World Trade Center, hosting 30 artists every September for up to 8 months that are selected through an annual open call application process. Silver Art Projects hopes to foster a continual dialogue around contemporary art in the lower Manhattan community.
Artists will be selected by a rotating jury of fellow artists, curators, and neighborhood leaders based on a brief statement and examples of their work.
