Founded as Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, LMCC serves, connects, and makes space for artists and community. Since 1973, LMCC has been the champion for independent artists in New York City and the cultural life force of Lower Manhattan. We envision New York City as a place in which artists and community in dialogue are creating a more just, equitable, and sustainable society.
LMCC is an NYC-based arts organization that serves artists and communities in Manhattan. LMCC's Arts Center is the first permanent home for artists and audiences on Governors Island. LMCC's Arts Center features yearlong artist residency programs with studio and presenting space for artists to develop their work, and a broad range of events during the public season (June through October), including exhibitions, workshops, performances, open studios, talks, and more.
