This lavishly illustrated guide takes you to 44 evocative Historic Artists’ Homes & Studios nationwide, from San Francisco to Maine.

Plan your trip to Alice Austen’s charming 18th century Staten Island cottage, Clementine Hunter’s humble cabin on a Louisiana plantation, and the Old Lyme boarding house where many of the Connecticut Impressionists found inspiration, as well as the Thomas and Mary Moran studio and the Pollock-Krasner House in East Hampton.

Welcome, Rachel


Meet our summer intern, Rachel Steigerwald, a Stony Brook University undergraduate history major who is working with our archivist, Diane Holliday, to catalog the archival collection recently donated by the Estate of Francis V. O’Connor, the foremost Jackson Pollock scholar. The collection, amassed over some fifty years, comprises Dr. O’Connor’s research material on Pollock, Krasner and their circle. Once catalogued, it will become a major resource for study of the New York School.

Rachel comes to us through Stony Brook’s Women’s Leadership Council, a mentorship program that pairs high-achieving young women with the university’s top female philanthropists to help remove barriers to their success. Her cataloguing skills were honed last year as an intern at the Hallockville Museum Farm in Riverhead, where she processed a collection of donated artifacts and assisted with the creation of new exhibits.
