This article is about a New York City-based artistic community. For network reality series, see Artstar.

Art Stars is a group of performers, comedians, poets, storytellers, musicians, and performance artists located in and around New York's Lower East Side.

The term "Art Star" was first coined by Andy Warhol.[citation needed] As used by performers like the Rev. Jen Miller in the mid-1990s, the term came to be used in that community as a tongue-in-cheek way to embody a non-competitive attitude (in which all artists/performers/participants are declared to be "Art Stars") shared among these performers in an otherwise competitive New York art and performance scene.
