Established in 1986, The Wallach Art Gallery at the Lenfest Center for the Arts is located on the campus of Columbia University. It is the University's premier visual arts space, a platform for art exhibitions, a dynamic range of programming, and publications that contribute to scholarship.
The Gallery operates in close relationship to the Department of Art History and Archaeology, School of the Arts, and the university Libraries, particularly Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library, serving as both a laboratory and a forum. The Gallery offers opportunities for curatorial practice and discourse, while bridging the diverse approaches to the arts at the University with a welcome broader public. Projects are organized by graduate students and faculty in Art History & Archaeology or by other Columbia scholars; focus on the contemporary artists of our campus and communities; and offer new scholarship on University special collections.
