We are pleased to announce Doctor’s Hours On Call, a new program that expands The New York Foundation for the Arts’ (NYFA) popular Doctor’s Hours program to provide practical and professional advice through one-on-one remote consultations with arts consultants via Skype. The program kicked off in March 2019 with Curator and Artist Michelle Levy, and visual or multidisciplinary artists and curators are encouraged to book 30 or 90-minute, one-on-one appointments for May or June with Levy today.

From 2008 to 2018, she was Founding Director of EFA Project Space, a rigorous cross-disciplinary exhibition program of The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts in New York City, where she also founded the SHIFT Residency (2010) to support the creative practices of artists who work for arts organizations. Levy’s initiatives at EFA received significant support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, The National Endowment for the Arts, the Lily Auchincloss Foundation, Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation, and Trust for Mutual Understanding, among others. From 2000-2008, Levy was Program Manager of International Print Center New York, a non-profit organization dedicated to exhibiting fine art contemporary printmaking.  

Using text, imagery, live performance, and ritual, Levy’s artistic investigations evolve over time, as revelations develop each subject further in art and in life. She holds a MFA degree in Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice from The City College of New York, and a BA degree in Studio Art from Wesleyan University. Recent honors include a CCNY Connor Scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London, support from the Czech Consulate for a curatorial residency at MeetFactory in Prague, and the Asylum Arts/POLIN Museum Poland Retreat for Jewish Artists in Warsaw. Levy is currently in Warsaw (2018-19) conducting artistic research for her upcoming project “Paulina (She is alone).”
