The EFA Studio Program was created to provide affordable studio space within a community of artists, facilitate career development, and promote public and critical exposure for our members. Members of the studio program are professional artists with a developed studio practice. Our members create work in wide range of media and artistic sensibilities creating a vibrant and diverse community of peers.

Membership is available to artists through an application and selection process. Members have a private studio for a period of up to two years at below market cost.
All studios are located in the EFA building at 323 West 39th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues in Midtown Manhattan.
Studios range in size from 200 to 435 square feet. Ceilings are 11 feet high. Membership fees vary according to the size and shape of the studio assigned to the artist, the studio's location in the building, and the artist's demonstrated financial need. Access to studios is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Visual artists working in all forms of media are eligible. The program is designed for artists with a developed studio practice and career experience. Applicants cannot be in a college or university degree-granting program. Certain types of work cannot be accommodated for practical reasons, including large or heavy sculptures, some types of metal work, and work involving high noise levels or fire risk. Applications are judged solely on the quality of the work as presented. EFA does not discriminate against anyone on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation or marital status. Artists must be citizens of the United States, or must be legal U.S residents during their tenure.
All applications must be submitted by Friday, December 14, 2012. Applicants must use the online application system and follow all instructions.
