Founded by artists in 1928, SculptureCenter is New York City’s only contemporary art museum dedicated to sculpture. SculptureCenter explores experimental and innovative developments in contemporary sculpture by commissioning new work and presenting exhibits by emerging and established, national and international artists. Since relocating to a former trolley repair shop in Long Island City in 2002, SculptureCenter has emerged as one of New York’s most adventurous contemporary art spaces. Originally renovated by artist/designer Maya Lin, the building has recently been expanded and renovated by Andrew Berman Architect.
SculptureCenter’s ambitious programs have introduced audiences from New York and beyond to the work of hundreds of emerging and established artists from around the world. Exhibitions and public programs consistently highlight emerging talent and advance artists’ careers in large strides. SculptureCenter is committed to creating a rich and layered context for the work presented and offers a dynamic series of public programs and events that feature artist talks, performances, film screenings, and concerts.
