The Wallach Art Gallery at Columbia University is pleased to present Uptown, a new triennial surveying the work of artists who live or practice north of 99th Street in New York City. Uptown showcases the work of established and midcareer artists alongside emerging talent from Harlem, El Barrio, Washington Heights and all of northern Manhattan. With this initiative, the Wallach Art Gallery joins as a partner and presenter of northern Manhattan’s vibrant art scene.
In Columbia Magazine, architect Renzo Piano writes about the master plan for the Manhattanville campus, a 21st century vision that embraces the arts, interdisciplinary research and the community.
For the more than 260 years since its foundation, Columbia has been in a state of perpetual evolution, yet always ensuring that each successive generation of students and professors have the tools they need to contribute to the body of knowledge and help solve some of the world’s greatest problems and dilemmas.
