Arts On Site is a non profit arts organization run by a team of volunteer artists dedicated to providing artists with affordable studio rentals and opportunities for artists to develop new works.
Arts On Site began as a party to showcase artists.
The event was an initiative from professional artists Chelsea Ainsworth, Kyle Netzeband and Adrian Rosas, to connect artists from multiple art forms. As the event grew, a diverse community of artists grew and the concept for Arts On Site was born.
In 2016, we established Arts On Site NYC as a non profit organization to support the development of artists and community collaboration. With the support of a team of volunteer artists, we opened up two studio spaces in the East Village to offer affordable studio rentals and provide space for community events. The Arts On Site NYC studios are a home for artists from all art forms.
In 2017, Chelsea and Kyle purchased 20 acres of land in upstate New York to begin construction of AOS R&R.
In 2018, we launched the Artist R&R Residency Program, sponsoring artists to participate in a week long residency to develop new works of art.
