The Visual Arts Program is committed to engaging the community with dynamic art experiences, promoting inquiry and advancing scholarship. Founded in 1977, the Program offers visitors a variety of exhibitions that feature historical subjects, emerging artists and community-based exhibits. Public programs such as workshops, lectures and tours expand visitor experiences and deepen the community’s relationship with the arts. SHARP, Snug Harbor Artist Residency Program, supports eight talented, culturally diverse, economically disadvantaged young artists annually in an eight-week fellowship program. Artists working in variety of disciplines at the post-BFA college level create new work and gain experience to establish successful careers in the arts. Studio space and living accommodations in a historic 19th century cottage are also provided to each artist at Snug Harbor. Funding primarily comes from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York City Council and the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation with recent additional support from Staten Island Arts, the Greenwall Foundation, JPMorgan Chase Regrant Program and New York Community Trust. Snug Harbor is a proud Smithsonian Affiliate.
