Don’t miss out on Kelly Akashi’s Long Exposure exhibition starting September 18th–December 18th. Kelly Akashi is an artist from Los Angeles pursuing her dreams in sculpture and photography. Come support and see her talents at her first solo institutional presentation.

Another upcoming exhibition you must see Nicola L’s 1968 to the Present opening September 18th–December 18th as well. Nicole is an experienced artist that resides in New York. She is mainly known for her differently formatted, unique works. She often takes the human body and represents it as furniture-like objects and vice versa.

Upcoming Events

Help the tradition live on! Attend the Clay Club’s Community Sculpture Studio on August 19th, 2017. The SculptureCenter was founded as Clay Club in 1928 by sculptor Dorothea Denslow. Exhibitions took place in Denslow’s Brooklyn studio before the institution. Students gathered together every summer (from 1928–1939) to collectively sculpt with natural clays. Come visit this August as an exhibition will be open to the public with two-thousand pounds of clay available for use! The event will be from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. with FREE admission. Get creative as the SculptureCenter celebrates this special occasion.

Get your fanciest shoes on at the SculptureCenter’s Annual Benefit Gala this October 26th, 2017. Come honor John Armleder and Charlotte Feng Ford at Long Island City’s waterfront event space, Anable Basin. All the proceeds will go to the SculptureCenter’s programs, exhibitions, and operations.
