Located in Long Island City, New York, SculptureCenter commissions new works and presents exhibitions by emerging and established, national and international artists. We hope you will join us for a playful look back at our history, while we highlight our commitment to the art of our time. The glamorous retro-chic Edison Ballroom promises to set the scene for an unforgettable night.
