The article highlights a nexus of arts philanthropies, arts organizations, and far-thinking designers to create an autonomous complex fostering the creative spirit on stage, page, and canvas in New York City. Tentatively dubbed the "Arts Incubator," the project is being bankrolled by such well-heeled organizations as the American Express Foundation and the Norman Lear Family Foundation and will be the handiwork of architect-turned-set-designers David Rockwell and Kevin Kennon, both working in tandem with the Public Art Fund. Features of the building will include a 99-seat theatre, visual arts studios, an art gallery and 10 housing units.
