The East Village Art Collection, also known as THE EVAC, has a simple mission: to give creators the opportunity to share their passion with the world.

THE EVAC prides itself on being an opportunity space for artists of all backgrounds and mediums. Whether you focus on sculpture, graphic design, painting, poetry, wearable art, illustration or photography, THE EVAC encourages a wide range of creatives to showcase their talents.

THE EVAC offers a wide variety of mediums as well as events dedicated to showcasing specific vocations, such as live music, dance and performative art. Regardless of your social reach or current position, THE EVAC prioritizes the integrity and credit of each artist.

If you are an artist we encourage you to apply so you can be featured within the gallery, if you are a supporter of the arts/collector/buyer come by the gallery and browse our current collection of art.

Meet the Head Curator | Steven Hirsch

Steven has long been an advocate for art and creativity in its many forms. Born in New York City, he has spent the past 30 years working in the fashion, design, and art industries. Through his diverse experiences, Hirsch has built a wide network of art collectors and an impressive knowledge-base, which he utilizes as the head curator at The East Village Art Collection, otherwise known as THE EVAC.

At The EVAC, Hirsch plans to transform his personal appreciation for art into a collaborative community. By providing artists with the space to share their work, Hirsch believes we can build a vibrant, diverse community of artists in New York City and around the world. For Hirsch, The EVAC is a place where artists of all mediums are able to gather and share their passion. It is Hirsch’s mission to ensure that the gallery supports all artists. Ranging from painters, sculptors, and musicians, to graphic designers, and writers, Hirsch strives to create a collective community primarily founded in the mutual love for art.
