LMCC Open Studio Weekend ---New York free

Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) presents Open Studio Weekend. 20 Workspace artists and writers will open their studios to the public, showcasing work completed over the nine months of their residency.
In addition, new cultural venue 92YTribeca hosts two special events on Saturday: Open Texts, a series of readings and performances by our writers-in-residence, and Moving Pictures, a screening of works by our film and video artists.

LMCC's signature Workspace residency program provides studio space and support for a diverse group of selected emerging artists and writers. LMCC will open its 15,000-square-foot Tribeca studio space to the public during Open Studio Weekend, the second time the studios have been open since the current session began in September.
