The Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University is home to the Gallery Space at Wagner. This collaborative endeavor with NYU’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study and the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development brings artwork into a public work space in an effort to further engage the NYU community and external audiences in dialogues on contemporary art and culture.
Since its debut in November 2005, the Gallery Space has hosted a variety of exciting and innovative exhibits featuring both established and emerging artists. Painting, drawing, photography, wall sculpture, collage, print-making, and mixed-media installations are among the multi-farious and dynamic disciplines showcased in this alternative space. The five annual exhibits held at the gallery are alternately curated by NYU Gallatin’s interdisciplinary arts adviser Ann Chwatsky and NYU Wagner’s graphic designer and arts consultant Frankie Crescioni-Santoni.
Located on the second floor of the historic Puck Building, the Gallery Space is comprised of two main display areas measuring 10 feet wide by 6 feet tall and 29 feet wide by 6 feet tall, in addition to two smaller auxiliary walls. These spaces are primarily reserved for the exhibition of artwork by NYU-affiliated artists with a focus on fostering partnership among the diverse University constituents. We have also hosted a number of special exhibits by local guest artists and practitioners whose projects align thematically with the school’s academic mission and curricula.
