The EFA Studio Center is a pioneering visual arts program founded in 1998. The Center provides artists the rare opportunity to work within a professional arts community in Manhattan and in close proximity to the city’s primary gallery districts. Members of the studio program include emerging, mid-career and established professionals who have exhibited widely in New York, the United States and abroad.

The EFA Studio Center, housed in a twelve-story building in midtown Manhattan, offers 82,000 square feet dedicated to 110 workspaces for visual artists. In addition to affordable studios, the Center provides short-term space for artists from other locations, an exhibition venue for independent artists, a printmaking facility and houses the headquarters for The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts and its operating programs: EFA Gallery, Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, and Artopolis. The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts believes in the essential importance of art in a civil society. The value of the artist’s creative spirit is not limited by age, race, nationality or acceptance by others.

EFA Studio Center is a program of The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts. EFASC is supported in part with public funds from the New York Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, The Carnegie Corporation Inc., Materials for the Arts, and many generous individuals. Refreshments provided by Starbucks and Izze Soda.
