Three exhibitions will be opening soon in the new Visual Arts Gallery in Chelsea. Located in the landmark Starrett-Lehigh Building, 601 West 26th Street, Suite 1502, the new space is in the heart of New York City’s professional art district—side by side with the Gagosian Gallery, Dia Art Foundation and other major galleries, placing the work of SVA’s students in the context of the professional art world. The exhibitions listed below mark the first opportunity for the SVA and NYC communities to view SVA students’ art in this exciting new space.
- Diversity + Self-Identity: BFA Fine Arts, March 5 – 27; Reception: Tuesday, March 16, 6 – 8pm. Curated by Jeanne Siegel.

Also, this is the last chance to see Steinberg: An Intimate View of his Art and World, which will close on Saturday, March 13, after a successful five-week run in the Visual Arts Museum, 209 East 23rd Street. The exhibition and its curator, BFA Fine Arts Department Instructor Anton van Dalen, were praised in a prominent New York Times article, featured in the Sunday, February 22 Arts and Leisure section.
