Smack Mellon Artist Studio Program

Since its inception, Smack Mellon has evolved into an organization that supports many artists through a highly respected exhibition program and artist studio program, and also benefits young people and the larger community through quality education programs. Accordingly, our organization’s vision has been critically and artistically acclaimed.

The Artist Studio Program was launched in 2000 in response to the crisis of available affordable space for artists living and working in New York City. The program provides six eligible artists working in all visual arts media a free private studio space accessible 24/7 and a fellowship (dependent on funding). The program runs for an eleven-month period from June to May. The studios are located on the lower level of our building at 92 Plymouth Street in Dumbo, Brooklyn and range in size from 250 to 300 square feet. The program does not provide living space.

For centuries the city has been a source of inspiration for artists. But while its sensory stimulation might fuel the creative soul, its neon highs are sobered by rising rents and lack of affordable studio spaces.
