Art Connects New York seeks to enrich the lives of all New Yorkers by making original visual artwork more readily available in non-traditional settings. Art Connects serves New York City-based artists and curators through its two core programs:
The Art Placement Program permanently installs artwork created by New York City-based artists in public areas of social service agencies in all five boroughs of NYC. We work with curators to tailor each placement to directly support the recipient agency’s mission.
ACNY Exhibition Space is dedicated to exhibiting the work of New York City-based artists without commercial gallery representation. Exhibitions are chosen through an annual competitive, open call juried process. Selected proposals showcase group and solo exhibitions of contemporary artwork grounded in sound intellectual art theory
