Announced by Mayor Bill de Blasio and Cultural Affairs Commissioner Gonzalo Casals in May 2021, the New York City Artist Corps represents an historic investment in artists by the City of New York. The $25 million program will support artists who live and work in NYC, while giving New Yorkers opportunities to experience cultural programming across the city starting this summer. As New York emerges from the pandemic, art and culture are an essential component of the city’s recovery. City Artist Corps will make sure working artists are supported in their own right, and are empowered to participate fully in the overall recovery of the City.

“Art and artists make New York City the cultural capital of the world, and the artistic community has an essential role in building a recovery for all of us,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “The City Artist Corps will tap into our greatest resource – New Yorkers’ boundless creativity – to create jobs and make our city more beautiful and vibrant than ever.”

Through a number of program partners, City Artist Corps will provide thousands of grants to support artist projects in all disciplines across all five boroughs of New York City:
