Drawing Center

 
Founded in 1977 by curator Martha Beck (1938–2014), The Drawing Center in Manhattan's SoHo district explores the medium of drawing as primary, dynamic, and relevant to contemporary culture, the future of art, and creative thought. The Michael Lovenko School Programs make The Drawing Center’s exhibitions accessible to diverse audiences. K-12 school groups can participate in free, educator-led discussions inspired by the approaches of the exhibiting artists followed by hands-on drawing activities in the galleries. In addition, the internship program has introduced hundreds of college students to the workings of an active, cutting-edge museum.
