Artists' Choice Museum

Artists' Choice Museum Artists’ Choice Museum in New York City was started in 1976 by many of the same younger artists who were active in the Alliance of Figurative Artists and the Figurative Coops.

First exhibition, a survey of 146 contemporary figurative artists was selected and organized by the artists of the Green Mountain, Bowery, Prince Street and First Street Galleries - although it was a broad survey and did not exhibit just artists from those galleries. After the first show older artists were brought into its structure. Other group shows followed in clusters of galleries on 57th street and in museums: “Benefit Exhibit” in 1979 (40 artists), “Younger Artists: Benefit Exhibit” in 1980 (61 artists),“Intimate Visions” in 1982 (14 artists), “Narrative Sculpture” in 1982 (12 Artists), “Painted Light” in 1983 (90 artists) and “Bodies and Souls” in 1983 (156 artists) to name some. By 1980 The Museum was publishing a bimonthly newsletter and by 1982 a magazine. By 1984 the Museum finally had a home; a building on West Broadway. This space only lasted until 1986 when the organization ceased to exist.Artists’ Choice Museum PublicationsACM Newsletter April 1980 to December 1981 (bimonthly)Journal of the Artists’ Choice Museum Spring 1982 to Winter 1986 (quarterly)Artists' Choice Museum Exhibition CataloguesArtists' Choice Museum Benefit Exhibition (1979)Artists’ Choice Museum Younger Artists: Benefit Exhibition (1980)Painted Light (Traveling Exhibition 1982-83)Narrative Sculpture (1982)Bodies and Souls (1983)The First Eight Years (1984)Richard McDermott Miller—The Nude in Bronze: Twenty Years of Sculpture (1984)Art and Friendship (15 Friends of Fairfield Porter) (1984)George McNeil—Expressionism 1954-1984 (1984)Paul Resika (1985)Aristodimos Kaldis (1985)Robert Barnes: Retrospective 1956-1984 (1985)The Figure in the Landscape (1985)Artists Choosing Artists (1985)Rueben Kadish: Survey 1935-1985 (1986)
