Rent Studio Space

Hundreds of artists of all experience levels already take advantage of becoming an Artist Renter. When artists join the program, they become part of a vibrant creative community where the shop functions as a: • production environment as well as a classroom • a venue for artist demonstrations and talks • a destination where international artists share their expertise • and a place where artists can earn revenue through sales, teaching and edition printing. Note that all Artist Renters must be capable of using the studio unsupervised. Upon payment and review of process, you’ll get a unique access code to enter Zygote’s shop. Zygote Press offers this Artist Renter program to give individuals full 24-7 access to the print shop on E. 30th St.

The Artist Rental program allows 24-hour access to the printshop, and is available to current members, and includes one flatfile drawer for personal storage. All code-holders must be comfortable using the studio with no supervision.
