The Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program is the new face of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Art Foundation Space Program, developed for artists, by artists in 1991.
The program is available to 17 individual artists who are chosen by a jury of professional artists from an annual pool of more than 1,200 applications. Since its founding, the Studio Program has awarded studio space to 385 American artists.
The Foundation’s Artists Advisory Committee — Cynthia Carlson, Chuck Close, Janet Fish, Philip Pearlstein, Irving Sandler, Harriet Shorr, and Robert Storr — initiated and developed the Studio Program as a service to living artists. Since 2006, artists Phong Bui, Matthew Deleget, Tara Donovan, Mark Greenwold, Deborah Kass, Beverly McIver, and Joel Shapiro have joined the Artists Advisory Committee, which continues to work in tandem with the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program’s management team.
