Endicott Studio's stated mission is to "honor mythic artists of the past, support mythic artists working today, and to carry this tradition into the future". Founded in Boston, Massachusetts in 1987, it was named after the street on which it began: Endicott Street in North End. Originally the Endicott Studio was housed in an old warehouse, with art shows, discussion groups for female artists and salon gatherings hosted by Ellen Kushner. Endicott Studio eventually left Boston, carrying on as a non-profit organization supporting projects in the United States (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK). The website was launched in 1997,cite web
