New Museum Expansion

The New Museum purchased an adjacent property at 231 Bowery for its future use and expansion of the Museum’s programs. The additional 50,000 SF new building will significantly expand the range of activities, contextual presentations, educational and discursive initiatives. In addition, develop more research and artist residencies, provide improved circulation in both the old and the new building, improve social spaces and public amenities and multiple opportunities for discovery and engagement. This new facility will double the museum’s footprint, providing twice as much exhibition space and improving visitor experience through additional exhibitions.
