Founded by David Rockefeller and other business and civic leaders in 1973, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) has been the leading arts presenter, advocate, and service provider to artists and arts groups throughout Lower Manhattan. LMCC was housed in the World Trader Center until 9/11 and is now still located in the Financial District in lower Manhattan.

LMCC is Manhattan’s largest arts council and provides artists with instrumental resources and support. One of their most popular programs is the Workspace studio residency program for emerging visual artists and writers. The application for this program is now out and the deadline is Thursday, April 9, 2009, 5PM.

Check it out and apply for 9-months of free studio space and a modest stipend. Workspace also provides great networking opportunities and open studio events.
