Helen Day Art Center and Habitat for Artists Project provide artists with access to precious free studio space and serves as a catalyst for mutual engagement between artists and communities.

The Stowe Recreation Path has been the site of the Habitat for Artists Project (HFA), hosted by Helen Day Art Center. A simple 6'x6' shed that acts as a temporary - and very public - studio, the Habitat is the invention of Simon Draper, an artist from the Hudson Valley. Helen Day Art Center and Draper's idea attracted 15 artists to spend their creative time working in the Habitat. Together they covered 45 days and were visible to as many as 30,000 visitors.
