A Century of Art, the newest exhibition from the Library’s Photography and Print Collections, is up now and waiting to delight your visual palette! Featuring works of art dating from from 1911 through 2010, A Century of Art features at least one work of art from each of those years. This year, it’s all about the number 100; this is a continuation of NYPL’s centennial celebration. As for the exhibit, expect to see well-known and lesser-known artists such as Diane Arbus, Tina Barney, Sol Lewitt, Dieter Roth, Yayoi Kusama, Jasper Johns, Thomas Struth, Hugo Wilson, and Bing Wright. Just walk right into the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Fifth Avenue at 42nd Street and walk up to the third floor. Our exhibitions are always free. Enjoy!
