About EFA Studio Program: Founded in 1998 as a program of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, the EFA Studio Program was created to provide affordable studio space within a community of artists, facilitate career development, and promote public and critical exposure for our members. EFA Studios is housed on eight floors of the EFA building located in Midtown Manhattan’s Fashion District, in close proximity to the city’s primary gallery districts. Members are selected by a jury of respected arts professionals, through a competitive application process. EFA Studios facilitates interaction with dealers, curators, and critics to provide continued development for member-artists. Unique among studio programs in New York City, EFA Studios is one of the few remaining arts organizations still providing long-term workspace in Manhattan.
