Founded by artists in 1928, SculptureCenter is a not-for-profit arts institution dedicated to experimental and innovative developments in contemporary sculpture. SculptureCenter commissions new work and presents exhibits by emerging and established, national and international artists.
In 2001, SculptureCenter purchased a former trolley repair shop in Long Island City, Queens. This structure, which was redesigned by artist and designer Maya Lin, includes 6,000 square feet of interior exhibition space, and a 3,000 square foot outdoor exhibition space. SculptureCenter’s new home opened to the public in December 2002.
In 2014, Andrew Berman Architect designed a new entry expansion, providing ticketing and orientation, a bookshop, facilities, and vertical circulation. New space for exhibiting work was formed by bounding exterior space between the new and existing buildings. The galleries in the vault spaces under the main hall were also renovated to become accessible exhibit spaces.
