There’s no place quite like New York City. Its people, diversity, creativity, and grit set it apart. It’s what has made this city a global hub of business and culture, and a beacon for the dreamers and the doers. It’s why we’re all in to keep art at the heart of NYC!  Are you with us?

MGC is doing its part to keep the visual arts alive and accessible in Manhattan in this challenging time. Since May, we have provided online programs, including artist talks, classes, and the Isolation Art Club, which allows MGC members to share their home practice and connect online. In June, we made a commitment to equality in alignment with Black Lives Matter and worked to diversify our board, staff, and programs. Our Black Women of Print Speaker Series, which began in August and runs through March, celebrates and uplifts the artwork of seven accomplished artists. In October, we reopened our print studio on a limited basis, following the highest safety standards.

In order keep these programs going strong we need you to do your part. Every donation, no matter how large or small, will help in this extraordinary moment. Donations will be used to:

  • Continue our programming

  • Invest in MGC's future in service to the people of the tri-state NYC area

  • Support scholarship and fellowship artists
