Not an artist, but want to support our community? Help us keep the Lower East Side on the cutting edge of artistic exploration and experimentation!

Outsiders need a way in, and it's our mission here at the Con Artist Collective to provide truly affordable studio space, gallery space and opportunities for the huge emerging artist community struggling to make ends meet here in the big apple. We do this by splitting up our 3,000 square foot art studio at cost, and opening up the community, discussion, and curation of our gallery to all of our $5/month members virtual members. All our members are also regularly invited to social events to help them expand their personal networks and get inspired by the work of others. 

We need your help to be more sustainable! Your donation helps us to keep our doors open to talented artists with sudden financial difficulties, helps to fund material costs for socials, and so much more.
