1997, the World Trade Center gained a new group of tenants: artists. Over the past 10 years, LMCC’s residency program, now called Workspace has provided free, temporary studio space in Lower Manhattan to over 250 emerging artists and writers in such locations as the Woolworth Building and the U.S. Custom House. Our mission to place artists in studios just blocks from Wall Street has changed what it means to “work” downtown. Out of Site is a series of guest curated exhibitions and special events that takes artists’ work out of the studio and brings audiences to several locations downtown to explore the program’s past and present.
