💥 FINAL WEEKEND! 💥

Our 50th anniversary exhibition, "From The Archives: White Columns & 112 Greene Street – 1970-2021…" closes TOMORROW, JULY 31.

"The exhibition is ultimately a testament to the collective efforts, shared enterprise and persistence of the many people who helped to establish, run, sustain, and nurture both 112 Greene Street and White Columns over the past fifty-one years: its staff, its volunteers, its board members, its funders, its audience, and, most crucially, the artists whose work was – and remains – central to the organization’s mission."

Don't miss it!
