TIAMSA New York Event: Wednesday November 1 at 6 p.m.
Tour of the Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation
Visit to the Grey Art Gallery exhibition, Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson.
Members are welcome to join us for the first TIAMSA New York sub-committee event this fall. We will meet at the Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation (526 LaGuardia Place) at 6 p.m. for a private guided tour. First established in 1974 with donations from friends and supporters of American artist Chaim Gross (1904-91), including Joseph H. Hirshhorn and Roy R. Neuberger, the Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization in 1988. The Foundation is located in the couple’s historic Greenwich Village townhouse and the artist’s studio space.
Afterward, we have the option of visiting the nearby Grey Art Gallery at NYU (100 Washington Square East). The current show, Partners in Design: Alfred H. Barr Jr. and Philip Johnson, explores how Alfred Barr, MoMA’s first director, and Philip Johnson, the curator of architecture, introduced modern design to North America.
TIAMSA members, prospective members, and their guests are welcome. Please RSVP here.
