Exhibitions at the Tribeca Gallery

In 1979, the School of Visual Arts opened a new gallery in Tribeca in the American Thread Company Building at 260 West Broadway. It was the first art school gallery to be located off-campus in the heart of the New York art world. The new location allowed student artists to receive greater public exposure and feedback from the art community beyond SVA. The gallery presented student work in a professional environment, providing a venue for the young artists to sell their work, and, in turn, offering young art collectors the opportunity to invest in works by burgeoning talents at affordable prices. Indeed, exhibitors at the gallery included Keith Haring, Amy Sillman, critic Dominique Nahas, Rodney Alan Greenblat, Lydia Dona, and Frank Holliday.
