The Drawing Center
In December 2010, The Drawing Center launched ReDraw: The Capital Plan for 35 Wooster Street with the purchase of a 2,000-square-foot unit on the second floor of 35 Wooster Street, which will replace its leased space at 40 Wooster Street.
Plans for the new space have been designed by Claire Weisz and WXY Architecture + Urban Design, an internationally-recognized New York–based firm. ReDraw's architectural program addresses specific exhibition, educational, and operational requirements, reinforcing The Drawing Center's mission to present the highest-quality cultural programming in galleries proportioned to facilitate a meaningful viewer experience—attributes that have made the institution one of the most respected, beloved, and distinctive non-profits in New York City.
The building project will connect the existing ground floor space to the newly-acquired second floor space and the lower level of the building. A new bookstore and a sky-lit Drawing Room gallery will join the existing visitor services desk and Main Gallery on the ground floor level. Offices and administrative spaces will move to the second floor, and the renovated lower level will accommodate a new education room, a Viewing Program meeting room, and the experimental Lab gallery, which will feature an audio and video media system for exhibitions and public programs. Integrating these spaces into one building will provide The Drawing Center with 50% more contiguous programmatic space.
The Drawing Center has suspended on-site programming as construction takes place.
