The Space Program, a national program began in 1991-located in Tri Beca for 17 years and now in its 5th year in Dumbo, provides free studios that are non-living spaces for the making of new works of art.
Marie Walsh Sharpe, a Colorado Springs, CO philanthropist, created the Foundation before her death in 1985 to benefit visual artists. The Foundation’s Artists Advisory Committee: Cynthia Carlson, Janet Fish, Philip Pearlstein, Irving Sandler, Harriet Shorr, Robert Storr and Chuck Close, Emeritus initiated and developed The Space Program in 1991 as a service to artists. In 2006 Phong Bui, Matthew Deleget and Tara Donovan were added to the Artists Advisory Committee. Please visit our website at www.sharpeartfdn.org for more information.
