Open Call

Snug Harbor has been a springboard for visual and performing artists since the 1970’s through artist residencies and opportunities to incubate new work. We support emerging and established artists from all over NYC and the region, and at times international artists. Two 19th-century cottages transform into live/work accommodations with access to dance studios, studio space, gardens and grounds. Additionally, the Snug Harbor Studio Program provides long-term studio rentals for visual artists, musicians and creatives in buildings across the campus.
