LMCC is committed to the notion that dialogue between artists and community can create a more just, equitable, and sustainable society. Founded in 1973, the organization has been a leading champion for independent artists and the cultural life force of Lower Manhattan, a local center of creativity with international impact. Through grants, residencies, and presentations, LMCC supports artists and engages audiences through programming that is always free and open to all. In 2019, LMCC opened the Arts Center at Governors Island, its first permanent space for artists and audiences, with 40,000 SF of dedicated exhibition and residency spaces, creating ever more opportunity for the public to engage with the visual arts.
In this unprecedented moment, LMCC's efforts are more critical than ever to the wellbeing of individual artists and small arts groups that have been rendered vulnerable by the shutdown of the pandemic. With the “New York We Love You” benefit auction, LMCC will raise needed funds to continue providing resources for artists and the rebuilding of constituent communities.
