History & Past Sessions

In 1997, LMCC’s then Executive Director Jenny Dixon launched World Views, an artist residency program at the World Trade Center in space donated by the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey. The pilot project provided studio space for 18 cityscape painters on several of the upper floors in both the north and south towers.

World Views evolved to include emerging visual artists working in a variety of media and genres, and over time became a program focused on professional development, building community, and public exhibits.

After the 2001 terrorist attacks destroyed the World Trade Center, the residency program continued to evolve throughout spaces donated by generous real estate owners across Lower Manhattan. We expanded the residency from six to nine months; we inaugurated the Salon Evening series, introducing artists and writers to myriad arts professionals; and in 2003, the program name changed to Workspace.
