The In Practice program supports artists in creating new work for exhibition at SculptureCenter. We invite artists to submit proposals for projects and installations to be presented during the Fall/Winter 2004-2005 exhibition season. All of the lower-level project spaces, the exterior courtyard, the building exterior, the reception area, and stairway are available for In Practice projects.

Building images and floorplans may be viewed and downloaded by clicking the download link above. Questions may be sent to inpractice@sculpture-center.org and will be compiled into an FAQ page as needed.
