Below are several frequently asked questions. If you have an inquiry that isn't covered here, please email email@example.com.
Where is SculptureCenter located?
Please refer to our Directions page to view an interactive Google map. You can use the map to get subway, walking, or driving directions to SculptureCenter.
Does SculptureCenter accept artist submissions?
SculptureCenter is able to view work from artists with whom we are not familiar during our annual In Practice open call. If you'd like to be notified by email when the next call is opened, please sign up for our email list. You don't need to sign up a second time if you're already on our list.
Artist materials submitted outside of the In Practice open call will be reviewed, but due to the volume of requests we receive every day, we regret that we are not able to reply to submissions. If your work appears both appropriate and timely for us to consider, we will contact you for a more formal review. Before sending materials, we ask that you first familiarize yourself with SculptureCenter by reviewing our past exhibitions and mission. We are unable to return submitted materials.
We do not accept email submissions.

Does SculptureCenter offer classes or sell sculpture supplies?

Who designed SculptureCenter's website?

We do not have a permanent collection. Our efforts are focused on commissioning and producing contemporary art.
Does SculptureCenter allow photography of its exhibitions?
Still photography and videotaping for personal use is permitted in SculptureCenter's galleries.
What is the history of the building that houses SculptureCenter?
SculptureCenter's space was built as a trolley repair shop for the subway system in 1907, but never used as such. In the 1940's, our building was used for the manufacture, assembly, and repair of derricks, hoist, and cranes, which our facade reflects with the original signage from that era.
