The Drawing Center is the only not-for-profit institution in the country to focus solely on the exhibition of drawings, both contemporary and historic. The Drawing Center is a small art gallery on an out-of-the-way, but not hard-to-find, side street in Soho.

The Center is similar to other small art galleries in the neighborhood, with white walls and columns; the architecture is not what makes it unique.

Description :

  • The Drawing Center is a SoHo museum and the only nonprofit exhibition space in the United States to focus solely on the exhibition of drawings, both historical and contemporary.

  • The Drawing Center is located on the ground floor of an historic, cast-iron building. Each year, the Center presents "Selections" exhibitions featuring the work of emerging artists and historical exhibitions that highlight the work of acknowledged masters and less celebrated artists whose work merits greater attention.

  • The Drawing Room features dynamic, drawing-based installations and exhibitions by emerging and under-recognized artists.
