SculptureCenter puts on finishing touches ahead of Oct. 5 reopening

We’re heading into the home stretch of construction at the SculptureCenter.1 Associate Director Ben Whine was kind enough to provide us with the below photos, and they’re definitely impressive. SculptureCenter will have a reopening event on Oct. 5 with the opening of Puddle, pothole, portal with free activities for the whole family at 44-19 Purves Street. From 12-3pm, visitors will be treated to art-making, music, food, tours, and fun as well as an official opening ceremony. Then, from 2-5pm, there will be music and drinks in the courtyard.

As previously mentioned, here’s what we’re in store for when the project delivers in October:2

The expansion includes a new 2,000 square foot addition to the dramatic existing structure. A one-story entrance lobby will provide ticketing, orientation, and visitor services such as a coatroom, restrooms and seating area. The expansion and renovation will significantly improve the quality of the exhibition spaces and visitor circulation.
