About the Event
Please join us for a special performance of highlights from our 2014-15 Season, followed by a toast to our coming year. The Tank is a home for over 1,000 artists annually creating work across seven different disciplines. We provide free performance space, along with a suite of other benefits including generous artist payouts, for some of the boldest, most talented emerging artists in New York City. We'd love for you to meet The Tank family and see what we've been working on in this eclectic, multi-disciplinary program!
