THE COLOR LOFT is a working artist’s studio that can be rented for a range of events. The versatile space and furnishings can accommodate up to 100 guests and be tailored to your specific function. The original artwork, both finished and in progress channels Chelsea’s famed art scene.

Just steps away from a Highline entrance, and with dozens of galleries within the building, THE COLOR LOFT provides an emblematic experience of the neighborhood. This unique venue is sure to make an impression.

We’d love to schedule a site-visit, where you can see the space, consult with us, and generate ideas for your event’s layout.

This gorgeous 3,000 square foot loft in the Heart of Chelsea is now available for rent for your next conference, film screening or offsite meeting. 

The event was very successful. We had about 30 people and the venue of a art studio made it unusual enough that it became a memorable event. Will, who represented the venue during the event, was friendly and helpful. I would certainly recommend the venue for the right event.

The space worked beautifully for my event! It was an inspiring environment to host a workshop in and flowed perfectly. Marylyn was very accommodating to me and my planning from a distance - her assistant was on hand during my event which was extremely useful.

Lovely space! The host was wonderful to work with, and every detail of the space was perfect. Our event went off without a hitch, and we received tons of positive feedback on the space from our guests. What a privilege to spend an evening surrounded by Marilyn's beautiful, colorful paintings!
