Visit Downtown Art’s back yard for hands on arts activities with FAB and a tour of our mural which celebrates women activists of the Lower East Side – specifically Clara Lemlich and the women workers of the Uprising of the 20,000, a key event in the NYC labor movement, and Frances Goldin and Cooper Square Committee who fought against massive displacement and created the first Community Land Trust in NYC.

Downtown Art has a history of working with young artists and community members to create performance, festivals, and other special events. Through our art and collaborations, we seek to build a community of engagement, creativity, and mutual support.
We have been resident for more than two decades on East 4th Street in the East Village/Lower East Side. Neighborhood is central to our concept of community and we are involved in a wide range of community initiatives, notably as co-founders of Lower East Side History Month.
Now that we are opening a new cultural and community center on East 4th Street, we are broadening our mission to build programs which support equity and diversity in the arts, cultural organizing, community and civic engagement.
Downtown Art is a founding member of FABnyc.
