NEWHOUSE CENTER FOR CONTEMPORARY ART

The Visual Arts Program is committed to engaging the community with dynamic art experiences, promoting inquiry and advancing scholarship. Founded in 1977, the Program offers visitors a variety of exhibitions that feature historical subjects, emerging artists and community-based shows. Public programs such as workshops, lectures and tours expand visitor experiences and deepen the community’s relationship with the arts. Partnerships with regional museums and galleries bring new audiences, cultivate ties with other cultural organizations and increase the Program’s visibility.

 

Historically, the Program has grown from a pioneering alternative space presenting borough-based artists to a venue for major group exhibitions that include a mix of local and international figures. The Program manages 15,000 square feet of exhibition space spread out across Snug Harbor’s campus and presents seven to 10 exhibitions each season. Funding primarily comes from the Department of Cultural Affairs and the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation with recent additional support from Staten Island Arts, the Greenwall Foundation, New York Community Trust, NYSCA/New York State Council on the Arts and the JPMorgan Chase Regrant Program.
