"The program is co-founded by Cory Silverstein and Joshua Pulman, who worked at Goldman Sachs and currently runs product strategy at art investment fund Arthena. The two met at college, bonded over their shared passion for art, and began to question how real estate could be leveraged to support the art community.
'As a real estate development company with properties primarily in Manhattan, we see how the artistic community is being pushed further into the boroughs to find affordable studio space,' noted Silverstein in a statement. 'Silver Art Projects will foster a continual dialogue around contemporary art in the financial district,' added Pulman. 'It’s a chance to bring talented artists into this corporate hub and engage these two worlds.'"
