Curatorial Services


Through its Curatorial Services, the New York Foundation for the Arts offers organizations, corporations, and individuals the opportunity to integrate contemporary art into their offices, headquarters, or homes. 

For over forty years, NYFA has forged and maintained relationships with thousands of visual, literary, and performing artists working in all disciplines and styles. NYFA's in-house curatorial staff helps potential collectors build equally dynamic and positive connections, by providing them with the unique opportunity to either purchase work created by NYFA-funded artists, or commission NYFA artists for site-specific installations. 

Whether large or small, permanent or temporary, for a courtyard or an office, NYFA's curators will work with you and your organization to ensure you receive the absolute best work for your space, needs, and aesthetic. As our clients can attest, companies and individuals have total control throughout the acquisition process.
