The New York Art Residency and Studios (NARS) Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit arts organization committed to supporting artists and curators on an international level as well engaging the local community in Brooklyn and the Greater New York area. NARS provides an array of creative support services and professional development opportunities to artists through its international residency program, progressive exhibition programs, and engaging public programs. These services operate in conjunction with our community outreach initiatives to promote greater accessibility to contemporary art for the under-served local community in south Brooklyn. Our mission is to present diverse platforms on which to nurture creative inspiration and innovative cross-pollination of ideas.

The NARS International Residency program provides 3-6 month studio-based residencies for international and US based artists in an in-house community of artists in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Spacious studios, studio visits, field trips artists talks, exhibitions, Open Studios, and other public programming are designed to offer essential professional development and access to international and local networks, in addition to the time, space, and other resources artists need to dedicate to their projects and studio practice in New York.
