Founded in 1884, Baxter St at the Camera Club of New York is one of New York’s oldest artist-run nonprofit spaces fostering the development of emerging lens-based artists at critical moments of their careers. Through dynamic programming and access to workspace, Baxter St at CCNY has long been a catalyst for innovative creation within the artistic mediums of photography and video practices. Ranging from exhibitions, workspace residency programs, and conversation series, our core mission is to support and activate a vibrant community deeply engaged in the art of lens-based contemporary practices.
The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts is established in New York, NY. His will called for the creation of a foundation dedicated to “advancement of the visual arts,” and he left nearly his entire estate to the cause.
