Director's Circle


The Director’s Circle is a newly formed patrons’ group of the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP), a group that provides an important ongoing source of support. Patrons learn about artists’ practices, see works before they are ever publicly exhibited, and take part in extended discussions about art in its place of origin, the inner sanctum of the artist’s private studio.

Guided by the International Studio & Curatorial Program’s Executive Director, Susan Hapgood, who has over thirty years of curatorial experience in the New York art world, the Director’s Circle patrons enjoy the following benefits: four studio events per year at ISCP, six private receptions with ISCP residents in Manhattan, one cocktail reception per year at a prominent New York art collector’s home, among other benefits.

Director’s Circle is an intimate, dynamic program, with a maximum of ten members at a time.
