New Museum, IdeasCity

What is drawing, and how can it be used as a tool for urban intervnetion? The Drawing Center is a museum that explores the medium of drawing as primary, dynamic, and relevant to contemporary culture, the future of art, and creative thought.

The Drawing Center was founded by former assistant curator of drawings at the Museum of Modern Art Martha Beck in 1977, with the mandate of seeking to "express the quality and diversity of drawing -- unique works on paper -- as a major art form."
