See NYFA’s exhibition celebrating 30 years of the Artists’ Fellowships Program

Triacontagon: A Celebration of 30 Years of the Artists’ Fellowship Program is an exhibition featuring 43 Fellows that is now on view at Westbeth Gallery until August 30, 2015. 

Technically a triacontagon is a thirty-sided star polygon. Although it is a star in its geometric configuration, it is also a circle which represents the full-circle relationship NYFA has with its Fellows, supporters and constituents. We borrow this terminology to symbolize the thirtieth anniversary of our Artists’ Fellowship Program and its scope.

Exhibition Dates: Thursday, August 13, 2015 – Sunday, August 30, 2015
Exhibition Location: Westbeth Gallery, 55 Bethune Street, New York, NY 10014
Gallery Hours: Wednesday through Sunday, 1 – 6 PM
