NEW MUSEUM
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

Founded in 1977 as a space dedicated solely to presenting contemporary art from around the globe, the museum also takes an avant-garde approach to its curatorial program by being both an incubator for new ideas and a home for less recognized artists. In 2007, the museum’s new home, designed by Pritzker Prize winning architecture duo SANAA, was completed on the Bowery. Amidst a cluster of relatively small buildings, the New Museum rises 175 feet above street-level—a dramatic stack of seven rectangular boxes.
