News: LMCC and Assets for Artists

This year, LMCC is partnering with ArtHome, a nonprofit organization with a mission to help artists build assets and equity, to provide BFA and ASI artist alumni with access to the Assets for Artists matched savings program, which allows low-income artists to accumulate working capital to invest in their creative businesses through a combination of savings and matching funds.


LMCC's Arts Services Programs are supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, Charina Endowment Fund, F.B. Heron Foundation, Joan Mitchell Foundation, Lambent Foundation, and Mertz Gilmore Foundation.

LMCC's Arts Services Programs are also supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.

Artists Summer Institute is made possible with support from the New York City Economic Development Corporation's Artist as Entrepreneur Program and, in part, by Creative Capital's Workshop Subsidy Program, underwritten by the Kresge Foundation.
