Housed in a former parachute harness factory, Fisher Landau Center for Art was designed by Max Gordon in association with Bill Katz and is devoted to the exhibition and study of the contemporary art collection of Emily Fisher Landau. The core of the 1500 work collection spans 1960 to the present and contains key works by artists who have shaped the most significant art of the last 50 years. Emily Fisher Landau's insightful selection of works by contemporary masters, many of which she purchased from the artists at the outset of their careers, is reflected in exhibitions presented at Fisher Landau Center for Art. Her ongoing commitment to emerging artists extends to the annual presentation of the Columbia University School of Visual Arts MFA Thesis Exhibition. In May of 2010, Mrs. Landau made a historic pledge of 419 artworks by nearly 100 artists, to the Whitney Museum of American Art. Excerpts from "LEGACY" a traveling exhibition that highlights the gift to the Whitney, will travel throughout the United States from February 2013 through 2015.
The gallery is located at 38-27 30th Street Long Island City, New York, Call (718) 937-0727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
