Located in Manhattan’s historic West Village, Westbeth is the largest artists’ residential community in the USA. It provides 384 live/work units, separate artist’s studios for painting, printmaking and ceramics, a gallery, and community room, which hosts programs sponsored by Westbeth Artists Residents Council (WARC). The New School Drama Program and Martha Graham Dance Studio are among commercial tenants of note. This landmarked architectural complex, the former Bell Labs, faces the Hudson River and is close to the Highline and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Westbeth is a veritable beehive of activities where painters, sculptors, photographers, graphic and mixed media artists work in a broad range of styles and media.
