Become a supporter today! 

MacDowell and the 92nd Street Y have partnered to produce a series of virtual programs which are free and open to the public: you can sign up here. This multi-disciplinary series of conversations about creativity and the arts serves to capture the magic of artists-in-residence from every discipline coming together on the MacDowell residency grounds. It features artists and luminaries from across the globe in dialogue including Change-rae Lee, P. Carl, Michael Chabon, Mary Schmidt Campbell, Lonnie Bunch, and Marc Payot, and others soon to be announced. This partnership series between MacDowell and the 92nd Street Y will take place over the course of 2021 and is hosted by MacDowell Fellow, author, visual artist, and MacDowell Board Chair Nell Painter.

After each free, public salon, we invite you to join MacDowell and our panelists for an intimate hour of cocktails and continued discussion between our event supporters and our panelists. Learn more about upcoming salons below:
