EFA is dedicated to providing artists across all disciplines with space, tools and a cooperative forum for the development of individual practice. We are a catalyst for cultural growth, stimulating new interactions between artists, creative communities, and the public.


EFA Studio Program, initiated in November 1998, is an open-submission, juried membership program for professional visual artists, providing subsidized workspace in midtown Manhattan for up to 80 artist-members. Individual studio practice within the EFA community is enriched by career development opportunities including open studio events, exhibitions, professional seminars and collaborative projects with collectors and curators.

EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop Program, opened in September 2005, is a fully equipped, professional, cooperative print workspace offering affordable studio access, classes, lectures, demonstrations and skilled staff assistance. RBPMW is guided by Robert Blackburn’s vision of inspiring and fostering a racially and culturally diverse artistic community that embraces technical and aesthetic collaboration. RBPMW publishes the work of talented, underrepresented artists alongside established artists for the purpose of expanding the creation, understanding and collection of fine art prints.
EFA Project Space Program, launched in September 2008, is a public forum that expands beyond the activities in the studios and the workshop, and encourages a critical engagement with the world at large. The Project Space, a multi-disciplinary contemporary art venue, encourages creative expression and new interactions in the arts to generate an ongoing dialogue about the creative process. In collaboration with a diverse range of organizations, curators and artists, Project Space presents exhibitions, projects, performances, residencies, seminars and events that promote a vibrant exchange of ideas among the individuals and communities that shape our culture today.

EFA is more than the sum of its programs, creating a welcoming and engaging community in the center of New York City.
