Museum and Gallery Indexes

1999 | 2000 | 2001 | 2002 | 2003

The following is a list of current museum and gallery exhibits on architecture and related topics in the New York City area.  These have been collected from announcements in various newspapers, magazines, mailings, email lists and professional publications. It is simply an attempt to gather and post these many exhibits and installations at a single accessible web location.

For convenience, the exhibits are organized by closing date so you know what has to be seen this week and what can wait until a later time. Also included are links to organizations, schools, publications and other sites that maintain web calendars. Presentations, seminars, tours and other "one-time" events are not included simply because too much happening in the area to keep the list thoroughly updated and accurate. Check the individual organizations for their own sponsored activities. If you know of other architectural exhibits or would like your own organization's exhibits placed on the list, please contact Scott.
