SPACE on Ryder Farm is a nonprofit residency program located on the grounds of a 223-year-old working organic farm in Putnam County, New York, just an hour north of New York City. SPACE’s mission is to create an environment singular in its ability to invigorate artists and innovators and their work, and to contribute to the sustainability and resourceful preservation of one of the oldest organic family farms on the East Coast.
