Emerging Artists: Pounce On A Chance To Take Over Studio Space, Create Art Community In Lower Manhattan

Natasha Gural, Forbes, July 3, 2019

"The cost of studio space has become an extreme barrier to entry for emerging artists, especially in New York City. Studio spaces are shrinking and struggling artists are forced further away from galleries, museums, and dealers, into neighborhoods that are nowhere near a subway line, if they're able to stay in New York at all. Amid more and and more shuttered storefronts, it's easy to give up hope.

 

Silver Art Projects, a corporate social responsibility project established by Silverstein Properties, the real estate development firm best known for rebuilding the World Trade Center, aims to reverse that trend."
