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: Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop, EFA Gallery, 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.
