We are not offering hourly studio rentals at this time due to the pandemic.
We are offering 4 day residencies (Sunday-Wednesday) at $400 and 7 day residencies (Sunday-Saturday) at $700. We understand that times are tough (both financially and emotionally) and we are trying to find the balance between meeting our financial obligations and serving our community of artists. If this price is not within your budget, we are open to discussing the matter with you. This offer begins immediately through the end of the year. Currently we don’t have any plans of extending this residency opportunity into 2021.
Arts On Site NYC Residency Program: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Arts On Site is offering studio space to artists in need. Studio space is made available to a limited number of artists through a four day or seven day residency program. Each residency includes one company of artists, limit of 5 artists per studio space, with unlimited access to Studio 3F. The studio space will be used strictly by one company of artists, there will be no shared use of studio space among artists from different companies. Currently all other businesses in the building are closed, Arts On Site is the only organization in operation in the building at this time except for V Spot which has its own separate entrance. Common areas within the building, including hallways and stairwell, are traveled by resident artists only.
Renter’s Responsibility: Renter is responsible for the safety and health of each individual artist within their company. All mandated protocols from state and local agencies must be followed. Renter is also responsible for daily cleaning measures and a deep clean to sanitize the studio at the end of their residency. Appropriate cleaning supplies are available in each studio space. Please refer to the cleaning checklist posted in each studio. Arts On Site cleans the common areas in the building between each one week rental period, before and after each resident artist, or as deemed necessary. Every visitor on each visit to the studio must complete the COVID-19 questionnaire.

Face coverings are required when individuals are traveling through common areas in the building and whenever individuals are within 6 feet of one another.

A comprehensive safety plan is available upon request outlining all preventative measures and a plan of action if a positive case of infection is identified. All individuals must have completed a “negative” COVID test within two weeks of residency date..
