The Drawing Center (website) is a Gallery in New York.
Official description from Drawing Center :
The Drawing Center is the only fine arts institution in the U.S. to focus solely on the exhibition of drawings, both historical and contemporary. It was established in 1977 to provide opportunities for emerging and under-recognized artists; to demonstrate the significance and diversity of drawings throughout history; and to stimulate public dialogue on issues of art and culture. Located in SoHo, The Drawing Center’s galleries provide an intimate and human scale viewing experience. It has been called "one of the city's most highly respected small art museums" by The New York Times. Attracting more than 55,000 visitors annually from the local area, across the country, and around the world, The Drawing Center has presented more than 230 exhibitions, published over 85 catalogs, and has been recognized through prestigious awards such as the International Art Critics Association/USA award for Best Show by a Non-Profit Gallery or Space for both the 2009 exhibition Unica Zürn: Dark Spring and the 2008 exhibition, Frederick Kiesler: Co-Realities.
Wikipedia excerpt:
The Drawing Center is a SoHo museum and the only nonprofit exhibition space in the United States to focus solely on the exhibition of drawings, both historical and contemporary. In August 2005, the Drawing Center was removed from consideration as one of the groups to occupy the World Trade Center. Also in 2005, it was among 406 New York City arts and social service institutions to receive part of a $20 million grant from the Carnegie Corporation, which was made possible through a donation by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.

We don't have any current exhibitions on file, most likely because we're still collecting listings.

In the meantime, check out the Drawing Center homepage or our exhibitions list for N.Y.-wide exhibits.
