October 20-21 from 11 to 6
Over 100 years after 41 Union Square was built specifically to meet the northern exposure light requirements of New York artists, our annual Open Studio event will resume since the hiatus of 9-11. Union Square was the scene of major movements in 20th century art, from the Ashcan School through the 14th Street School--including Arshile Gorky, Morris Kantor, Sol Steinberg, Reginald Marsh, Jack Levine, Andy Warhol; our building housed the Partisan Review with Allen Ginsberg in Studio 1427, The New Yorker's Janet Malcolm, and Isabel Bishop, who worked in Studio #41.
Today, it is home to a metropolitan blend of artists and professionals, who range from design, non-profit foundations, and healing modalities to dot com startups and patent law.
Join us on October 20-21 as we once again invite the public to view our vertical urban community of creative art and life: living in the 21st century.
Throughout the weekend, there will be demonstrations, refreshments, and a free raffle of 1 of 40 original drawings by our Resident Emeritus artist, Hank Virgona.
