We look forward to welcoming you back to The Drawing Center soon!

In support of New York City’s effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 and for the health and well-being of our visitors and staff, The Drawing Center will reopen to the public by appointment only.  All visitors will need to make a free, timed-entry reservation ahead of their visit, which can be scheduled here. We’ve modified our hours and will be open Wednesday through Sunday, 12pm to 6pm.

We’ve been working hard to welcome you back safely, so you’ll notice some changes throughout our space. To ensure the safety of our visitors and staff, we will be limiting the number of people in our galleries, and all visitors will be required to wear masks and practice social distancing upon entry. We’ve also installed sanitizing stations and new signage to help you navigate our space.
