BACKGROUND ON THE DRAWING CENTER
A downtown presence for nearly 30 years, The Drawing Center is a highly respected cultural and educational institution and a locally beloved organization. The Drawing Center has achieved the stature of a world-renowned small museum while providing visitors an intimate and accessible visual art experience.
The Drawing Center was established in 1976 to provide opportunities and services for emerging and under-recognized artists; to demonstrate the significance and diversity of drawings throughout history; and to stimulate public dialogue on issues of art and culture.
