Smack Mellon's mission is to nurture and support emerging, under-recognized mid-career and women artists in the creation and exhibition of new work by providing exhibition opportunities, studio workspace, and access to equipment and technical assistance for the realization of ambitious projects.

Smack Mellon's Visual Arts Exhibition Program is at the center of the organization. Designed to advance public interest in the visual arts, the focus of the program is on creative technology-based projects, as well as traditional art forms. The gallery space provides for large, ambitious shows that allow each artist ample room to explore and present their work. On average, Smack Mellon produces five exhibitions a year showcasing the work of more than 50 artists for 20,000 visitors. The gallery, which is free to the public, is open five days a week.

The Artist Studio Program was launched in 2000 in response to the crisis in availability of affordable workspace for artists living and working in New York City. This program provides free studio space, access to a workshop for metal, wood and general fabrication, a common area equipped with the latest technology and a fellowship to six artists for a one-year period. Each year, Smack Mellon convenes a panel of arts professionals to select the artists from some 500 applicants. Smack Mellon hosts two Open Studios events annually, as well as sponsored visits from curators, critics and gallerists, which provide significant exposure and invaluable career building opportunities.
