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 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.
