White Columns is New York’s oldest alternative art space. It was founded in 1970 to present and uphold the most challenging and creative visual arts by under-supported artists. White Columns consists of an ongoing program of culturally diverse exhibitions and services for visual artists. It is a not-for-profit gallery which is open to the public, free of charge, eleven months per year. Many of this country’s most prominent artists received their first major exposure through a White Columns show.
